Cal Dive International, Inc. (NYSE:DVR) (the “Company”) announced today that it is continuing to work with several financial institutions towards a refinancing of the Company’s first lien revolving credit facility in an amount up to its previous capacity of $125.0 million, and expects the refinancing to be completed by the end of this week. The Company is also working with its existing second lien facility lenders on an amendment to that facility that will be entered into at the same time as the refinancing is closed. Although the refinancing was not finalized by the September 30 deadline required by the terms of waivers previously granted by the Company’s existing first lien revolving credit facility lenders and second lien facility lenders, those lenders are working cooperatively with the Company to allow extra time needed to complete the refinancing.
