Héroux-Devtek’s $250-million Revolving Facility has been extended to a new five-year term, maturing in June 2026.

In addition, the fully-drawn $75-million Term Loan Facility has been extended three years from the initial term and now matures in September 2028.

Together with available liquidity totaling $278 million as at March 31, 2021, the accordion feature would allow the Corporation to deploy nearly $500 million with no major capital repayments until June 2026.
