RATING AS A KEY INDICATOR

The Würth Group views its longstanding close cooperation and relationship of trust with the rating agencies as essential. The Central Managing Board maintains direct contact with analysts and provides them with several first-hand reports a year on its course of business, financial position, strategic and operational issues, outlook, and other topics.

The Würth Group seeks to maintain its excellent credit rating and has for many years consistently and successfully adapted its (financial) strategy to meet this ambition.
