Just Energy Group Inc. ("Just Energy" or the "Company") today announced the approval of its recapitalization plan (the "Recapitalization") at special meetings of securityholders held earlier today.

"The Recapitalization is part of a comprehensive plan to strengthen and de-risk the business and position Just Energy for sustainable growth as an independent industry leader. The Recapitalization significantly improves Just Energy’s financial flexibility with an equity injection of over $100 million and reduces net debt and preferred shares by approximately $520 million," the company said
