Moody’s withdraws Metso’s (Neles) credit ratings

Neles Corporation, Stock exchange release, July 17, 2020 at 8.00 pm EEST

Moody's Investors Service (Moody's) has today withdrawn the Baa2 long-term Issuer rating and (P)Baa2 senior unsecured MTN rating of Metso Corporation that was renamed to Neles, following the successful completion of the spin-off of its Minerals business.

Moody's states that it has decided to withdraw the unsolicited rating for its own business reasons. The full notification is available at Moody’s website.

Neles does not require the credit rating since the senior unsecured notes which the rating was related to were transferred to Metso Outotec at the closing of the partial demerger of Metso on June 30, 2020.
