Just Energy Group Inc. ('Just Energy' or the 'Company') announced that the Ontario Superior Court of Justice (Commercial List) (the 'Court') has, among other things, approved (i) the extension of the stay period under the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act (Canada) ('CCAA') to February 17, 2022 (the 'Stay Extension'); and (ii) an amendment to the CCAA Interim Debtor-In-Possession ('DIP') Financing Term Sheet (the 'DIP Facility') between the Company and the DIP lenders to, among other things, extend the maturity of the DIP Facility to September 30, 2022.
"The Stay Extension and DIP maturity extension allow the Company to continue to operate in the ordinary course of business while pursuing a restructuring plan with its stakeholders," Just Energy said
In addition, further to the Company’s previously reported announcement on November 1, 2021, the Court approved Just Energy entering into a support agreement with an affiliate of Generac Holdings Inc.
