Sigma AB has been awarded the AAA credit rating by Soliditet. This means that we have received the highest possible credit rating and thus have a strong financial base. This in turn provides security to customers, suppliers and business partners, and is a strong testimony to our ability to live up to our undertakings.
Soliditet’s AAA rating system utilizes data from various open sources. To receive a triple-A rating, a company must among other things, have key figures that are significantly higher than the industry norm. In all, about 2 percent of Sweden's businesses have a triple-A credit rating.
"We've worked continuously to improve our financial base," says Lars Sundqvist, CFO. "This is proof that our efforts have produced results. That Sigma is among the 2 percent to have this rating makes us very happy and proud, but to retain the AAA rating, we must keep both our sales and finances in good balance."
The triple-A rating system from AAA Soliditet AB has been in use since 1989 and is Sweden's most well-known credit rating system. The AAA rating system utilizes data from open sources, such as the Swedish Companies Registration Office, the Swedish Tax Agency, Statistics Sweden, the Swedish Enforcement Authority and Lantmäteriverket (the Swedish mapping, cadastral and land registration authority). The scale, which ranges from AAA for the highest rating and C for the lowest, is compiled based on a number of different decision-making rules. To receive a triple-A rating, a company must among other things, have key figures that are significantly higher than the industry norm.
