Chapter 11 Plans’ Analysis Using Credit Cloud

Reorg experts recently conducted an analysis of chapter 11 filings.

Reorg on the Record: Russia sanctions will not free parties from contractual obligations… (04/20/22)

Written by Shan Qureshi, Head of Legal Restructuring Innovation and Initiatives || The sanctions imposed on Russian individuals and entities by the U.K., EU and the U.S. over the previous months are the most far reaching seen in modern times. In a recent webinar Reorg hosted with lawyers from Pallas Partners LLP on the impact of sanctions on the loan agreements, we highlighted that sanctions do not act as a route around parties’ agreed contractual arrangements. Lenders who find their arrangements are caught by the sanctions will be forced to act quickly to avoid being fined, while some borrowers may...

Reorg on the Record: Puerto Rico exited its historic Title III restructuring… (04/13/22)

Written by Seth Brumby, Deputy Managing Editor, Americas Municipals by Reorg || After almost five years, the commonwealth of Puerto Rico exited its historic Title III restructuring in March, coincident with one of the worst municipal bond market performances in recent memory. As almost $16.1 billion in restructured general obligation and contingent value instruments broke for trading on March 15, the municipal market more broadly was on track for a loss of 6.2% in the first quarter of 2022. Continued outflows from the municipal bond market were the primary culprit in the underperformance, driven largely by the Federal Reserve’s campaign...

Reorg on the Record: Inflationary pressures, supply-chain disruptions, labor shortages and commodity costs… (03/23/22)

Written by Mark Fischer, Director of Credit Research || In a surprising move last week, movie theater company AMC Entertainment said it is buying a 22% stake in gold mining company Hycroft Mining Holding Corp. and its 71,000-acre Hycroft Mine in northern Nevada. While operationally, the connection is still not clear, the headline at least can be used to highlight the intersection of risks in the credit markets between companies still trying to recover from the effects of Covid-19 and how companies can adapt to inflationary pressures brought on by supply-chain disruptions, labor shortages and commodity costs. Equity markets last week posted their strongest performance since...
