Canadian Western Bank and The Bank of Nova Scotia have joined the lending syndicate. The principal amount has been increased from $75 million to $125 million effective January 22, 2014. The maturity date has been extended to July 22, 2018 after which the entire amount must be repaid. The interest rate remained unchanged.

Badger is North America’s largest provider of non-destructive excavating services. Badger traditionally works for contractors and facility owners in the utility and petroleum industries. Our key technology is the Badger Hydrovac, which is used primarily for safe digging in congested grounds and challenging conditions. The Badger Hydrovac uses a pressurized water stream to liquefy the soil cover, which is then removed with a powerful vacuum system and deposited into a storage tank. Badger manufactures its truck-mounted hydrovac units.
