Capture

S&P Global Ratings has upgraded its long-term rating on the company to BB- from B+ and maintained the outlook at stable, according to a Mint report.

It said the rating upgrade was because the company was on track to slash part of its $15 billion debt in the next two years helped by higher realisations and strong cash flows.

Moody’s Investors Service said it has changed its outlook for Tata Steel Ltd to stable from negative. Its profitability has steadily improved to its 10-year high of Rs 18,948 EBITDA/tonne during the third quarter of FY21, from Rs 4,969 in the first quarter, PTI reported.

Moody’s forecasts a long-term sustainable EBITDA/tonne of Rs 13,200 for fiscal 2022 for TSI, constituting a 30 percent gap compared to the December quarter.
