November 04, 2015 - Moody’s upgrades Fibria’s rating to investment grade

São Paulo, November 3, 2015 – The risk-rating agency Moody’s has just updated Fibria’s credit rating from ‘Ba1/Positive’ to ‘Baa3/Stable, effectively giving the company the status of investment grade. According to the agency’s report, the upgrade reflects mainly the financial discipline of Fibria, which has shown the capacity to consistently lower its leverage ratios while maintaining a solid liquidity position.

Another factor cited by Moody’s in its decision to upgrade Fibria’s rating was the expectation of its investment in the expansion project at the Três Lagoas industrial complex while maintaining debt levels that are compatible with an investment grade rating.

“The investment grade rating assigned by Moody’s reinforces Fibria’s credit quality even during a new investment cycle, reflecting the company’s strong cash generation capacity and competitive position in the industry,” said Guilherme Cavalcanti, Fibria’s CFO and IRO.

Fibria had already attained investment grade ratings from Standard & Poor’s in April this year and from Fitch last year.
