Credit ratings/ debt market

In June 2024, Moody's raised the credit rating from Baa2 to Baa1, placing it at the upper end of the rating class and adjusting the outlook to stable. The further increase in profitability and free cash flow as well as a conservative financial policy and low debt were key factors in the rating upgrade.

In addition to the continued improvement in profitability despite a tighter market environment, this also reflects GEA Group Aktiengesellschaft's robust business model.
