S&P’s recent upgrade of BRIDGE from A+ to AA- strengthens our credibility even more with investors, lenders, and other partners. The upgrade is a result of many factors, including our strong financial health and S&P’s confidence in our leadership. The S&P team visited BRIDGE properties and met with our CEO, Ken Lombard, and senior executives to drill down on our overall performance and growth strategies. The upgrade reflects a great team effort at BRIDGE and is a tremendous vote of confidence in our future direction.”
