Auna Receives Ratings Upgrade From S&P Global

S&P Global Upgrades Auna's Credit Rating to ‘B’ with Stable Outlook on Completed Refinancing

MEXICO CITY, MEXICO, LIMA, PERU – April 25, 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 S&P Global Ratings (“S&P”) upgraded its issuer credit rating and rating on the Company’s existing notes to ‘B’ with a stable outlook following the Company´s recently completed refinancing. 

According to a related report from S&P, the rationale for the rating upgrade was supported by Auna's extended debt maturity profile, improved liquidity position and new business profile, including a larger operating scale and diversified geographic footprint. The new stable outlook reflects S&P’s expectation that the Company’s operating and financial results will continue to improve and will accelerate deleveraging.

Based on preliminary results which are still subject to change, the Company is expected to announce 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, preliminary 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.
