Review of Kinaxis Inc

Nov 30, 2021

Kinaxis is a leading supplier of supply chain management and concurrent planning platforms for mid-market and large enterprise organizations and has demonstrated its ability to grow and strengthen its revenue base. Its recent acquisition of Rubikloud should increase its market-leading position in the AI supply chain space and further add to its product offerings available to clients. Rating maintained at ‘B+’.


Review of Badger Infrastructure Solutions

Nov 30, 2021

North America’s largest provider of non-destructive excavating services is expected to benefit from continued spending from oil and gas producers. Tailwinds coming out of the US infrastructure spending should also aid growth. Given the weaker balance sheet and contracting margins, valuations look less attractive today. Rating downgraded to 'B-'.


Review of CAE Inc

Nov 30, 2021

After a rough year, CAE, as the world’s largest provider of civil aviation training services, ultimately appears to be in an excellent position to benefit from the multiyear cyclical market recovery that is currently under way. Rating maintained at ‘B+’

Q: ECN announced "The Distribution is scheduled to be paid on December 22, 2021 (the “ Payment Date ”) to holders of Common Shares of record as of the close of business on December 15, 2021 (the “ Record Date ”). Subject to confirmation from the Toronto Stock Exchange, ECN Capital expects the Common Shares to commence trading on a “due bill” basis at the opening of trading on December 14, 2021 and to commence trading “ex-distribution” on December 23, 2021. The due bill redemption date will be December 24, 2021."
