S&P Global Ratings assigns investment grade rating to JDE Peet’s

PRESS RELEASE

Amsterdam, 21 May 2021

JDE Peet’s (Euronext: JDEP), the world’s largest pure-play coffee and tea company by revenue, today announced that S&P Global Ratings (S&P) has assigned an investment grade rating (BBB-/Stable) to the company. This rating reinforces the company’s commitment to further improve its credit profile, underscoring its operating strength, strong financial discipline, and continued progress.

In its release, S&P noted: “JDE Peet's demonstrated resilience during 2020 thanks to the leading brand equity of its portfolio across product categories and different geographies. Notwithstanding our expectation of a continued tough environment in the out-of-home channel, we project that the group's annual free operating cash flow will return to above €900 million from 2021, supporting its deleveraging progression. We therefore raised our long-term issuer credit rating on JDE Peet’s to 'BBB-' from 'BB+', and revised our outlook to stable from positive.”
