Moody´s has assigned OMV a senior unsecured issuer rating of "A3" while Fitch has assigned an issuer default rating of "A-", thereby underpinning OMV´s strong credit quality. The outlook of both ratings is stable. This is the first time that either agency has assigned a credit rating to OMV. David C. Davies, CFO of OMV said: "Maintaining a strong investment grade credit profile has always been a key strategic objective for OMV. The strong credit profile confirmed by Moody´s and Fitch reflects the Group´s commitment to capital discipline, whilst successfully implementing our growth strategy." The ratings underpin OMV´s strong positioning in the fast-growing Central and Eastern European downstream market due to its leading position in its core area of the Danube Basin, where it owns interests in five refineries and holds a 20% market share in marketing.
