Premarket trading in S&P Global Inc. (NYSE:SPGI), shares dropped 8.2 percent on Wednesday after the debt rating and analytics business announced it was suspending its full-year financial projections, citing its reasons as “extraordinarily unfavorable” market circumstances.
A month ago, the business dropped its adjusted earnings-per-share projection from $13.30 to $13.50 to $13.00 to $13.25 due to worsening macroeconomic circumstances.
Financial guidance will be reintroduced when the firm announces its second-quarter results, which are expected to be released in late July, according to the company.
S&P Global noted in a statement that “debt issuance volumes have been unusually sluggish this year”. A yearly reduction in market issuance might be expected until the end of 2022 if current trends continue.
