Kraft Heinz's credit rating cut to 'junk' by Fitch

DATE POSTED:February 14, 2020

Kraft Heinz's credit rating cut to 'junk' by FitchShares of Kraft Heinz, in which billionaire Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc and Brazilian private equity firm 3G own major stakes, fell about 4%. Chicago-based Kraft Heinz, which last year took a $15.4 billion writedown of key brands including Oscar Mayer hot dogs, has been struggling to grow sales as consumers shift to healthier options and private-label brands. "Following Kraft's commentary around 2020 operating headwinds and its commitment to maintain its dividend, Fitch estimates the company may need to divest up to 20% of its projected 2020 EBITDA to support debt reduction," the agency said.
