S&P changes Storskogen’s credit rating

Corporate news

S&P Global Ratings (“S&P”) has today announced its downgrading of Storskogen Group AB’s credit rating from BB+ (outlook stable) to BB (outlook negative).

As communicated at Storskogen’s Capital Markets Day in September 2022, and in the interim report for the third quarter, Storskogen is actively working to improve cash flow and to decrease its net debt/EBITDA ratio (defined as interest-bearing net debt/adjusted RTM EBITDA).

“Our current leverage is within our target range of 2-3x. We have the ambition to decrease our leverage towards the lower end of the range, in order to strengthen our balance sheet. Storskogen’s liquidity is good and there is no refinancing need during 2023, which makes us comfortable with our financial position”, says Lena Glader, CFO, Storskogen.
