Fitch has affirmed AC and AC Bebidas’ investment grade credit rating


Monterrey, Nuevo Leon. August 3, 2018.--Arca Continental, one of the top Coca-Cola bottlers in the world, and its subsidiary AC Bebidas, were once again granted an “A” rating on the long-term, foreign- and local-currency Issuer Default Ratings (IDR), and an AAA(mex) rating in National long-term, by Fitch Ratings.

Arca Continental's ratings reflect the solid business position of its beverage business, AC Bebidas, which is one of the largest bottlers of Coca-Cola products in the world with geographically diversified operations in Latin America and Southwestern U.S.

These ratings reflect the solid overall performance shown by the Arca Continental businesses in their territories.

In addition, Arca Continental Lindley maintained its “A-” rating and revised its outlook from stable to positive.

It is also important to mention that Arca Continental Lindley’s credit profile has improved despite pressures resulting from regulatory changes in Peru.
