Fitch upgrades DP World rating

DUBAI, August 21, 2016

Fitch Ratings recently upgraded global maritime operator DP World’s long-term Issuer Default Rating (IDR) to BBB from BBB- and its short-term IDR to F2 from F3. The rating outlook is stable.

The upgrade follows on the Fitch announcement in November 2015 that DP World’s outlook had been revised to Positive from Stable.

It reflects the global trade enabler’s strong performance and stable cash flow generation supported by its geographical diversification, high utilisation rate of terminals and the long-term maturity of its main flagship operation in Jebel Ali, Dubai, UAE.  

Sultan Ahmed Bin Sulayem, Group chairman and CEO, DP World, said: “We are delighted to have received a rating upgrade by Fitch recognising the strength and resilience our portfolio has shown in both favourable and challenging market conditions alongside our continued progress and long-term growth potential. We remain committed to delivering growth through continued disciplined investments and managing leverage.” – TradeArabia News Service
