Auna Receives Ratings Upgrade From Fitch Ratings


Fitch Ratings Upgrades Auna's Credit Rating to ‘B’ with Positive Outlook

MEXICO CITY, MEXICO, LIMA, PERU – April 28, 2023. Auna S.A.A. (“Auna” or the “Company”), one of the largest players in the Latin American healthcare industry and with presence in Mexico, Colombia and Peru, announced today that Fitch Ratings (“Fitch”) upgraded the Company’s Long-Term Foreign and Local Currency Issuer Default Ratings (IDRs) to ‘B’ with a Positive Rating Outlook. Fitch also upgraded Auna’s 2025 notes to ‘B’/’RR4’.

According to a related report from Fitch, the upgrade reflects Auna´s extended debt maturity profile and reduction of immediate liquidity risks following the Company´s recently completed refinancing. The positive outlook reflects Fitch’s expectations of ongoing improvement in Auna’s internal cash flow generation and an expected deleverage trend that should, in Fitch’s opinion, support the refinancing of the Company’s US$ 300 million senior notes due 2025 in the next 12 months-18 months.

The Company had strong 2022 results including audited consolidated pro forma revenue of USD $812 million and pro forma Adjusted EBITDA (as defined under the Company´s outstanding senior notes) of USD $177 million, with net leverage of 4.84x. Furthermore, based on preliminary results which are still subject to change, pro forma first quarter 2023 results demonstrate the momentum in Auna´s operating and financial performance and as a result, a decrease in net leverage for a third straight quarter.
