The company recently announced a strategic review of its “non-core” assets, aiming to expedite its deleveraging plan. This move is part of Dye & Durham’s broader strategy to reduce its leverage ratio and strengthen its financial position.
“Despite our strong business performance and liquidity position, we understand our shareholders would like us to reduce our leverage ratio,” CEO Matthew Proud said. “We strongly believe this strategic review will accelerate this process. We are working closely with our financial and legal advisers to ensure the review is comprehensive, diligent and maximizes value.”

With a market capitalization of CAD 668.25 million and a 52-week range of CAD 7.46 to CAD 23.14, Dye & Durham is navigating its financial and operational challenges with these significant corporate actions.
