Deferred Capital Generation
The company reported a proposed offering of USD$350 million, in aggregate principal amount, of senior unsecured notes which would be due in 2028. Offered through the indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary Penn Virginia Holdings, the funds generated were intended to be allocated towards the full repayment of a second lien term loan and to further repay outstanding borrowings. May 7th, 2021 saw the company announce that it would be deferred this offering indefinitely.
Future Outlook for PVAC
With the company having reported strong numbers in the financial reports for Q1 2021, PVAC has exhibited a strong start to the fiscal year after a prior year that proved economically devastating. The deferral of the dilution of shares is also likely to have been promising for investors, who look to the company to capitalize the resources it has at its disposal to leverage significant and sustained increases in shareholder value.
