Southwest Gas Holding’s and Southwest Gas Corporation’s borrowing costs and ability to raise funds are directly impacted by its credit ratings. Securities ratings issued by nationally recognized ratings agencies provide a method for determining the credit worthiness of an issuer. These credit ratings are a factor considered by lenders when determining the cost of debt (i.e., generally the better the rating, the lower the cost to borrow funds).
A credit rating is not a recommendation to buy, sell, or hold a security and is subject to change or withdrawal at any time by the rating agency.
