CTL Investment Credit Ratings for Sherwin-Williams Company when considering a Sherwin Williams Building Loan:

Standard & Poors Global Ratings assigned a BBB- (investment grade) credit rating with a Stable Outlook on April 24, 2020.  Moody’s shows a credit rate of Baa2, Outlook Stable, not on a watch list as of August 6, 2020.  A Baa2 is considered investment grade with Moody’s as well. This is an upgrade from prior ratings:

Moody’s Background on updated rating:

Moody’s upgraded the ratings to reflect continued improvement in the company’s earnings, cash flow, and credit metrics despite an unprecedented shock from outbreaks of Coronavirus in the United States and around the world. Sherwin’s business has held up better than rated peers in the coatings industry and the vast majority of rated chemical companies. Revenues fell modestly and EBITDA improved in the first half of 2020 following the company’s aggressive pivot to focus on curbside pickup, delivery, and other methods to maintain business levels during rolling lockdowns, limitations on retail businesses, and adoption of social distancing policies across the United States. This demonstrated very clearly the strength and flexibility of its excellent brands, strong retail network, fleet of delivery vehicles, and customer-focused mentality. The company generated $1.8 billion of free cash flow over the past four quarters, maintained an excellent liquidity position, and successfully completed attractively-priced debt offerings.

Unsecured Credit Rating Update:

Sherwin’ Baa2 senior unsecured ratings balance the strength of the company’s business model and stated intention to reduce leverage against longer-term event risk in a still-fragmented global coatings industry. The company’s business model features an excellent position in the North American architectural paints business, strong retail network, and demonstrated ability to operate successfully through economic cycles. Acquiring Valspar Corporation (The) in June 2017 strengthened the company’s growth platform in more industrially-oriented end markets and international geographies — both of which remain modest contributors to earnings and cash flow today. Management reiterated an intention to reduce leverage to 2.0-2.5x (Debt/EBITDA; management’s definition) and reported leverage of 2.8x on a trailing twelve months basis ending 30 June 2020.

The rating incorporates that management will achieve this target in the coming quarters through a combination of earnings improvement and/or debt reduction. The rating also assumes that the company will continue to increase its regular dividend over time and resume share repurchases in the second half of 2020, which will slow deleveraging compared to a scenario where substantially all free cash flow is deployed toward debt reduction like 2018 and 2019. M&A opportunities in the coatings industry remain significant and event risk is a meaningful factor constraining the pace of improvement in the company’s ratings.

Other Factors impacing the ratings from Moody’s:

Environmental, social, and governance factors are important factors influencing Sherwin-Williams’ credit quality. The company is exposed to ESG issues typical for a company in the specialty chemical industry, including manufacturing products that are subject to specific regulatory scrutiny. Coatings companies typically have lower environmental risks related to manufacturing processes compared to other specialty chemical companies. Governance risks are similar to other publicly-traded chemical companies. The most significant ESG risk for Sherwin-Williams is social risk related the company’s exposure to health and safety issues related to the legacy use of lead in coatings products. Sherwin-Williams has been successful at defending against lead paint litigation for the past several decades with modest expected cash payments today.
