Solicited Corporate Credit Rating for GLOBAL POWER S.P.A.: B1- (Affirm)
modefinance published the Solicited Corporate Credit Rating of GLOBAL POWER S.P.A. on the CRA website and the rating assigned to the entity is B1- (affirm). The analysis revealed it is an adequate company, with average capability of repaying financial obligations and little affected by the adverse economic scenario.
The Company GLOBAL POWER S.P.A. was founded in 2004 and operates in the energy sector, as a supplier of electricity and gas, for important Italian companies and public entities
Key Rating Assumptions
The Company confirms a “sufficient” economic-financial situation despite the well-known economic difficulties of the sector (mainly due to the increase in the cost of raw materials) and macroeconomic difficulties (due to inflation and instability resulting from the Russian-Ukrainian conflict).
These factors have led to a general increase in credit and debt positions and, at the same time, there has been an increase in costs.Moreover, it has been pointed out a physiological decrease in cash and cash equivalents due to the massive absorption of resources by working capital, which was negatively affected by procurement costs. Treasury management undergoes strong variations over the weeks, but the company has equipped itself with useful control tools to monitor short-term liquidity.
The Company responds to the strategic need to grow in the consumer and small business market through a special purpose company (sale of energy and gas contracts and energy efficiency solutions such as photovoltaic or electric micro-mobility), enhancing, at the same time, the contribution that growth in this market can bring to the parent company Global Power.
