    Creditreform Rating has confirmed the unsolicited corporate issuer rating of Pernod Ricard S.A. at BBB. The outlook remains stable. Significant factors for the rating decision are the positive business development in the 2021 financial year (FY21) and the reduced net financial debt, which contributed to an improvement in the results of the analysis of the key financial figures. Nevertheless, both sales and earnings, as well as net financial debt, are not yet back to their pre-crisis levels. Hence, we have left the outlook at stable for the time being, against the background of the intensifying pandemic trend and the associated uncertainties and volatilities they pose to the further business development, and despite the operational and financial improvements in FY21.

    Creditreform Rating has confirmed the unsolicited corporate issuer rating of Pernod Ricard S.A., as well as the unsolicited corporate issue rating of the euro-denominated, long-term senior unsecured Notes issued by Pernod Ricard S.A., at BBB. The outlook has been revised from positive to stable. Decisive for the adjustment of the outlook are the negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, which have led to a significant decline in sales and earnings, a significant increase in (net) financial debt, and thus a noticeable deterioration in the results of the key financial figure analysis for the 2019/2020 financial year. Although the qualitative and quantitative fundamentals of the company remain solid overall, we see no prospect of a rating improvement for the year as a whole against the background of the COVID-19 pandemic, which continues to develop dynamically, and the associated uncertainties and volatilities with regard to further business development.
