Driscoll commented:

“We attended Just Energy’s (JE – Buy; $6.00 PT) analyst day yesterday in New York. We left with reinstilled confidence that the company is making the proper moves to remake its value proposition. The day focused on the new management team’s strategy to bundle smart energy management solutions with its core commodity offerings to drive RCE growth, expand margins, create stickier customer relationships as well as generate more consistent financial performance after several exogenous weather events. Management just raised $250M in in a multi-draw term financing (8.75% coupon due in 2023) to pay down its maturing convertible notes (July 2019) and add liquidity for future M&A (small customer books or attractive smart energy solutions most likely) opportunities.”
