Standard & Poor's lowers Caruna's credit rating

International credit rating agency Standard & Poor's (S&P) lowers electricity distribution company Caruna's credit rating from "BBB+; Credit Watch Negative" to "BBB; Outlook Stable". The drop is due to the exceptional changes made to the regulation model during the regulatory period for electricity distribution companies, which led S&P to reassess the Finnish regulatory framework for DSOs from "strong" to "strong/adequate" and to change the credit rating. The changes therefore weaken the industry's financial position and prospects in the eyes of international investors.
