Moody's Investors Service, (“Moody's”) today affirmed Kohl's Corporation (“Kohl's”) Baa2 senior unsecured rating and assigned a Baa2 rating to its proposed $500 million senior unsecured notes offering. The outlook remains negative. The net proceeds will be used to repay a portion of its senior secured asset based revolving credit facility with the remainder for general corporate purposes.
