Archrock, Inc. (NYSE:AROC) (“Archrock”) announced that S&P Global Ratings (“S&P”) has upgraded Archrock’s issuer credit rating to ‘BB-’ from ‘B+’ with a stable outlook.

S&P also raised the issue-level rating on Archrock’s senior unsecured debt to ‘BB-’ from ‘B+’.

S&P pointed to high equipment utilization, increasing earnings and declining leverage through the forecast period. S&P highlighted in their report, “Archrock has significantly increased EBITDA since 2022 as a result of stronger demand, increasing utilization and contract rates. We forecast S&P Global Ratings-adjusted debt to EBITDA will be 3x-3.5x in 2024 and under 3x in 2025.”

Doug Aron, Archrock’s Chief Financial Officer, commented: “Archrock has built a strong balance sheet and resilient financial position through debt reduction, profitability growth and disciplined capital allocation. We are proud of the upgrades from S&P, which indicate strength in the compression market outlook and recognize improvement in the stability and quality of Archrock’s operations and cash flows.”
