CENTENNIAL--13 Feb--S&P Global Ratings
CENTENNIAL (S&P Global Ratings) Feb. 12, 2018--S&P Global Ratings raised its issuer credit rating (ICR) to 'A' from 'A-' on Wabash Valley Power Association (Wabash), Ind. The outlook is stable.

"The raised rating reflects our view of Wabash's strong financial management, and our expectation that fixed charge coverage metrics will improve in the near-term to sustainable levels that support the higher rating," said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Andrew Bredeson. "The raised rating further reflects our view of the cooperative's improved liquidity position, diverse power supply portfolio, and manageable 10-year capital program, which doesn't include significant generation needs," Mr. Bredeson added.

The stable outlook reflects our expectation that Wabash will maintain its improved liquidity position due to increased profit margins and reduced fixed capacity costs associated with purchased power.

Wabash Valley Power Association is a generation and transmission cooperative headquartered in Indianapolis, providing wholesale power to its 23 distribution system members and serving approximately 313,000 end-use customers.
