Moody’s upgrades Citycon’s credit rating to Baa1

Stock exchange releases - 15 January 2016

 Moody’s Investors Service has upgraded Citycon’s investment grade level long-term corporate credit rating to Baa1. The outlook is stable. The previous rating was Baa2 with a stable outlook.


 The rating was upgraded mainly due to Citycon’s improved business profile following the acquisition and integration of Norwegian Sektor Gruppen that increased the scale, improved the geographical diversification and reduced the tenant concentration risk of the company.


 Moody’s press release is attached to this release.
