In that context, could it be similar to a dividend recap? I've seen one case where they accepted smaller bolt on for a bigger asset base to take on more debt and give a dividend to basically get super close to but under any covenant triggers.. not sure if that's the case here though.. only really heard juicing as equity injections as the prior reply

Juicing almost always refers to juicing returns or increasing financially reported numbers (which does the same thing if selling or recapitalizing)

Right, but they said it in a way to where they are basically paying themselves by “pushing” up the distributions...I don’t really understand the logic of how they are paying themselves if they are also contributing at the same time?
