MOODY'S LOWERS WINN-DIXIE RATING; OUTLOOK NEGATIVE

Moody's Investment Service downgraded its debt rating for Winn-Dixie Stores Inc. notes and placed the ratings on a negative outlook following the company's earnings report and announcement this week that the Jacksonville-based supermarket would retool the company and make up to $100 million in cuts.

The rating affects up to $300 million in senior notes, which were downgraded to B1 from Ba2. The 8.875 percent notes are a revolving credit facility that currently has no outstanding debt against it, the company said. In a release Friday, Winn-Dixie said it may re-evaluate its financing strategy pending an analysis of its core market.
