Canadian agribusiness cooperative Saskatchewan Wheat Pool said it is reviewing capital market alternatives that will allow the company to strengthen its balance sheet and lower interest costs.

Chief executive officer Mayo Schmidt said that the Pool expects to engage its delegate body in the process if the review leads to a capital market initiative.

Schmidt indicated the timing was good because the Pool recently reported its fourth consecutive quarter of improved financial performance, and the industry is expecting the first good crop in years.

The review will proceed over the coming months.
