S&P Global Ratings affirm Ellevio’s credit rating, improving outlook to stable
On July 12, 2021, Standard & Poor’s, the global credit rating agency, affirmed its credit rating on both the senior secured debt and the subordinated debt issued by Ellevio. The outlook for the rating is changed from negative to stable due to improving regulatory environment.
In the research update, S&P Global Ratings states that the Swedish parliament’s passing of the legislation allowing DSOs to carry forward under-recovered amounts from previous periods for future investments “signals a broad understanding for increased investments, triggered by the increasing pace of the energy transition.” The stable outlook reflects the improving Swedish regulatory environment, and Ellevio’s flexible financial policy.
”It is positive to see that S&P affirms our current credit ratings, and thereto raises the outlook to stable. This is a confirmation of our long-term financing strategy and important for our continued investments into a sustainable electricity network that enables the climate transition,” said Jan Seveborg, Senior Vice President Treasury.
