Our roundup of Canadian small-caps of between $100-million and $2.5-billion in market capitalization making news and on the move today.

NFI Group Inc. (NFI-T) announced late Wednesday it expects amendments to its credit facilities to be completed before Aug. 3. Previously the company expected to complete the amendments during the second quarter. The company said it believes the discussions with its banking partners “are advancing well,” with draft terms prepared and reviewed by both sides.

The company said the detailed discussions relate to amendments to its existing $1.25-billion senior revolving credit facility and its £50-million revolving UK credit facility, where NFI said it’s pursuing covenant relief that reflects its trailing 12 financial results and its expected financial performance for the remainder of 2022.

NFI said that with the “anticipated covenant relief, the company’s cash position and capacity under the credit facilities, combined with anticipated future cash flows and access to capital markets, will be sufficient to fund operations, meet financial obligations as they come due and provide the funds necessary for capital expenditures, dividend payments and other operational needs, including the temporary build-up of work-in-process inventory from supply chain disruptions.”

NFI also said it doesn’t currently have any plans to raise additional external capital, “including to address the credit facility covenant issues.”
