European corporate default rate to spike: S&P Global

This post was originally published on this site

S&P said its baseline 8.5% forecast would see at least 62 speculative-grade companies default. A more optimistic 3.5% default rate would see 25 defaults, whereas the pessimistic 11.5% outcome would see 84 defaults.

“Expansive monetary and fiscal support could lessen defaults over the near term, but much assistance to date adds to existing debt piles at a time when basic revenue is lacking,” S&P said in a report.
