Rating Action: Moody's downgrades GameStop's CFR to Caa1, changes outlook to negative. New York, April 22, 2020 -- Moody's Investors Service, ("Moody's") downgraded the ratings of GameStop Corp. ("GameStop") including its Corporate Family Rating to Caa1 from B2, Probability of Default Rating to Caa1-PD from B2-PD, and 6.75% senior unsecured note rating to Caa2 from B3. At the same time, the company's Speculative Grade Liquidity rating was downgraded to SGL-3 from SGL-2. The outlook was also changed to negative from stable. "The downgrade reflects Moody's expectation that given our forecast of lower earnings in 2020 compared to 2019, GameStop's EBIT/interest expense will be below 1.0x, which despite the expected benefit of the launch of new consoles could make it difficult for GameStop to refinance its unsecured notes that mature in March 2021 on economic terms," stated Pete Trombetta, AVP-Analyst at Moody's.
