OREANDA-NEWS. SSE plc is pleased that Standard & Poor’s has affirmed its ‘A-/A-2’ rating, albeit with a revised outlook.  S&P previously revised its outlook on SSE’s rating in October 2014.

SSE Finance Director Gregor Alexander said:
“SSE has a long history of financial strength and discipline and our financial management is always designed to maintain that.  S&P’s revised outlook reflects its opinion on the impact of energy and commodity prices.  With a balanced business and a clearly-defined and well-financed capital investment programme, we believe SSE is and will remain financially-strong business, in keeping with its position as a long-term business.”
