Fitch to review ratings of Refinitiv Parent, Refinitiv US Holdings amid LSE deal

Fitch Ratings on Aug. 5 changed the outlook on the BB long-term issuer default ratings of Refinitiv Parent Ltd. and Refinitiv US Holdings Inc. to positive from stable, and simultaneously placed the ratings on Rating Watch Positive, after London Stock Exchange Group PLC agreed to acquire Refinitiv in an all-share transaction for a total enterprise value of approximately $27 billion.

The agency also placed the B+ long-term senior unsecured debt rating and BB+ senior secured debt rating of Refinitiv US Holdings on rating watch.

The rating watch placement will be resolved positively if LSE completes its announced acquisition and refinances all of Refinitiv's $13.5 billion of outstanding debt, Fitch said.
