Concordia debt issue yields some breathing room, says Canaccord
Canaccord analyst Neil Maruoka noted Concordia priced its $350M of debt at reasonable prices given its increased debt load and the widening of its credit spreads. The analyst said the company can generate sufficient cash to meet its obligations over the next 18 months and the cash infusion should provide sufficient liquidity to manage the timing of payments. Maruoka maintained his Speculative Buy rating and $10.00 price target on Concordia shares.
