National Express Group awarded investment grade credit ratings by Moody's and Fitch



National Express Group PLC ("the Group") is pleased to announce that Moody's Investor Services and Fitch Ratings have today published new long term investment grade credit ratings for debt issued by the Group, of Baa3 (stable outlook) and BBB- (stable outlook) respectively.  These ratings will be assigned to the Group's existing £350 million 7 year 6.25% Sterling bond issued in January 2010.


Commenting, Jez Maiden, National Express Group Finance Director, said "Today's confirmation of our investment grade credit rating represents a further successful step in delivery of our recovery plans. These ratings not only confirm the coupon on our recent unrated bond but will also allow the Group to consider further bond issuance as and when appropriate."
