(Reuters) - Shares of Canadian packaged ice maker Arctic Glacier Income Fund AG_u.TO rose almost 50 percent on Tuesday, a day after some unitholders of the debt-stricken company proposed a $300 million refinancing of the fund.
The fund’s long-term debt was $4.9 million and liabilities were $336.5 million as of June 30, according to Thomson Reuters data.
Arctic Glacier had said in August that its ability to continue as a going concern is dependent on whether it is able to negotiate longer term covenant relief with its lenders.
The Winnipeg, Manitoba-based fund’s units, which have lost nearly all their value in the past four years, touched a high of 12 Canadian cents in early trade on the Toronto Stock Exchange. (Reporting by Maneesha Tiwari in Bangalore; Editing by Maju Samuel)
