Duerr to Sell Company Bond Without Credit Rating, Rely on Name, FTD Says

Duerr AG plans to sell its next corporate bond without a rating because the company isn’t satisfied with methodology rating companies use, Financial Times Deutschland reported, citing an unidentified spokesman for the German maker of automotive painting robots.

Duerr is considering renouncing ratings on the company and can save 100,000 euros ($126,000) annually it pays for such assessments, the newspaper said.
