SunEdison announced that its reorganization plan became effective on Dec. 29, 2017, and the company has emerged from Chapter 11 as a newly reorganized, privately held company. As previously announced, the Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York confirmed the plan on July 28, 2017.
Following over $2.3 billion of gross asset sales throughout its Chapter 11 cases – including the sale of the company’s most valuable asset, its interests in non-debtor affiliates TerraForm Power and TerraForm Global (together, the yieldcos) – SunEdison emerges with a significantly smaller footprint and will continue to focus on monetizing its remaining assets.
As part of the plan negotiation process, the company facilitated key settlements with its diverse constituent groups. John Dubel, the company’s CEO and chief restructuring officer, commented, “We sincerely appreciate the support and cooperation of our financial stakeholders, advisors, creditors, and other parties involved in the company’s Chapter 11 process, including our first and second lien lenders, the official committee of unsecured creditors, and the yieldcos. We also want to thank the company’s outgoing board of directors for their invaluable contributions and guidance relating to the company’s restructuring.”
Richard Katz will serve as chairman and CEO of the reorganized SunEdison.
