S&P affirms Hemsö’s rating A- with stable outlook
In June 2021 Standard and Poor’s (“S&P”) communicated that they had updated the criteria for “Public & Social Housing Providers” and for that reason decided that these criteria were no longer applicable for Hemsö.
S&P decided that Hemsö should be evaluated according to the criteria for traditional real estate companies (“Key Credit Factors For The Real Estate Industry”). At the same time Hemsö was placed on Credit Watch Negative. The evaluation of Hemsö according to these criteria has now been finalized and S&P have decided to affirm Hemsö’s credit rating A- with stable outlook, the same credit rating from S&P that Hemsö has had since 2015.
“It is good that we now have received the outcome from S&P as the uncertainty in relation to Hemsö’s long-term rating now diminishes, which is beneficial to all Hemsö’s lenders”, says Rutger Källén, Deputy CEO and CFO at Hemsö.
