Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Kirti Vagadia, Chief Financial Officer, Suzlon Group said: “We are pleased to announce that we have been upgraded to Investment grade (BBB-) from D rating (in 2012). The rating clearly demonstrates our restored credibility on account of significant deleveraging, strong industry outlook, our sizable order-book, order pipe-line and strong operating performance. We have maintained strict discipline from the beginning of the current financial year towards timely payment of all our financial obligations.

While a strong credit profile definitely helps in getting timely and cost effective finance, it is also a big credibility booster for various stakeholders, which is extremely critical in our industry.

Government’s clear thrust on renewables and our constant efforts to bring down the cost of energy has resulted into favorable business outlook. We are committed to create maximum stakeholder value by relentlessly working towards powering a greener tomorrow.”
