    CVS's BBB-plus rating placed on Creditwatch negative by S&P after Aetna deal

    Standard & Poor's on Monday placed its BBB-plus ratings on CVS Health Corp. on Creditwatch negative after the drugstore chain said it is buying Aetna Inc. for $69 billion, the bulk of which will be paid for with debt. "In our view, CVS' financial risk profile will weaken considerably as a result of the significant increase in debt, given the scale of the acquisition as well as execution risks that could affect operating performance," S&P wrote in a note. The rating agency said it expects to resolve the Creditwatch by lowering the rating by one notch, as soon as more information on the deal and financing becomes available. It expects the company's adjusted debt-to-EBITDA to be in the 4.5 times to 4.8 times range after the deal closes and to remain above 4.0 times for at least a year. CVS said it plans to suspend its share buyback program and use the funds to reduce debt. CVS and Aetna's most active bonds were little changed on Monday, according to MarketAxess. CVS shares were trading down 5%, and are now down about 10% in 2017, while the S&P 500 has gained 18%. Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
