Both S&P and Fitch have announced that they intend to assign an investment grade rating to SBB. The rating, BBB-, will be assigned to the company if it completes the issue of a EUR 300 million hybrid bond.
SBB’s current rating is BB+ and the hybrid bond is expected to raise the rating by two notches.
The proceeds from the bond transaction will primarily be used to reduce the company’s current secured debt.
