Under the plan, holders of the Calfrac’s unsecured notes will receive shares in the company in exchange for the debt.

The existing holders of Calfrac’s common shares will hold an eight per cent stake in the company once the transaction is complete.

As a result of the recapitalization plan and offering, the company’s total debt will be reduced by approximately $570 million and annual cash interest expenses will be cut by approximately $52 million.
