Agencies Affirm “AA” Credit Rating

In October, CHI’s “AA” credit rating was affirmed by all three independent global credit rating agencies – Fitch Ratings, Moody’s Investor Services and Standard & Poor’s. The continuation of the “AA” rating recognizes CHI’s strong balance sheet and solid financial performance in fiscal year 2009. CHI leaders Kevin Lofton, President and CEO; Michael Rowan, executive VP; and Susanna Laundy, interim senior VP and CFO, recently met with representatives of the three rating agencies to update them on key financial indicators for the fiscal year ended June 30.
