Calgary, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - April 27, 2020) - Bonavista Energy Corporation (TSX: BNP) ("Bonavista" or the "Company") announces that the Company, its banking syndicate (the "Lenders"), and the holders (the "Noteholders") of the Company's senior unsecured notes have been actively negotiating the reorganization of the Company's debt maturities and related interim arrangements.
