STMicroelectronics : Statement from STMicroelectronics, following Moody's upgrade to Baa3

      

Geneva - November 16, 2017.

Carlo Ferro, Chief Financial Officer of STMicroelectronics, commented:

" Moody's decision today is another tangible result of ST's ongoing transformation, driven by sustainable revenue growth and underpinned by a solid financial position. 

We anticipate 18% revenue growth this year (at the midpoint of our Q4 guidance), and in the third quarter we expanded our operating margin to 13.7% and net earnings to $236 million, which represented our record level for the past 15 years. Moreover, we strengthened our capital structure with the $1.5 billion new convertible bond issued in July 2017 at zero cost. Moody's decision reflects these results and, importantly, their sustainability over time.

We are pleased that all three rating agencies which report on ST on a solicited basis are now aligned in rating ST's credit profile within investment grade."
