Best Agrolife Ltd. (BAL), an Indian agrochemical major, announced on Friday that CARE Ratings Limited has assigned a 'CARE A-' rating to the company's long-term bank facilities with a stable outlook.

CARE assigned the rating to BAL’s bank facilities on the basis of the company’s long track record of operations, integrated operations of the group with a diversified product portfolio, and wide distribution network. The ratings further derived strength from the consistent growth in scale of operations at the compounded annual growth rate of over 23% over the past four fiscals ending FY22. It is noteworthy that CARE Ratings had allotted a credit rating of A- to Best Crop Science India Pvt. Ltd. (BCSPL), a wholly owned subsidiary of Best Agrolife Ltd., in July 2022.

The upgraded rating reflects our perennial focus on executing our strategy and building a solid foundation for strong and reliable long-term leadership in the agrochemical industry.”
