Debt and rating - Hera Group
The goal of the Group's financial operations is to maintain an adequate current and projected balance between investments and the use of capital on the one hand, and sources of financing on the other, in terms of both repayment plans and types of interest.
In order to maintain the low risk profile it has reached, Hera counts on improving the Group's financial structure, setting as a target in the plan to 2024 a Net debt/Ebitda ratio coming to 2.8x, in line with the previous Plan.
The increase in investments foreseen in the new Business Plan was made possible not only by the positive results reached in 2020, but also by Hera’s financial solidity, which leaves room to manoeuvre with additional unforeseen investments.
