Excel Maritime Carriers Plan Confirmed
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court confirmed Excel Maritime Carriers’ Amended Joint Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization, and the Company expects to emerge from Chapter 11 protection by mid-February 2014. The Plan was unanimously accepted by the Company’s two voting classes, with 100% of the class of secured lenders and approximately 92% of the class of impaired general unsecured creditors, by value, voting in favor. Upon completion of the restructuring process, the Company’s total pre-petition debt of $920 million will be reduced to approximately $300 million. Gabriel Panayotides, chairman of the board, together with other members of Excel Maritime Carriers’ management team, will continue to lead the Company. This seaborne transport provider filed for Chapter 11 protection on July 1, 2013, listing $2.7 billion in total pre-petition assets.
