COVID-19: How Kennametal is responding

Kennametal Inc. announced today that on July 11, 2005, Moody's Investors Service upgraded Kennametal's credit rating to investment grade status in recognition of the company's improved credit metrics, steady improvement in operating performance, successful acquisition activity, and solid growth. The rating also reflects Kennametal's strong and consistent cash flow, leading market position, and a focus on new products, productivity, and cost controls. With the Moody's upgrade and Kennametal's existing investment grade standing with both Standard & Poors and Fitch, the company has now attained investment grade status with its three credit rating services.
