Into the Unknown

Catalyst Paper has announced that they will be filing for creditor protection under CCAA since conditions were not met in order to proceed with the consensual recapitalization transaction. Here's a quote from the press release:
The company previously announced a consensual recapitalization transaction under the Canada Business Corporations Act (CBCA) that had the support of certain of the holders of the company’s 11% senior secured notes due 2016 and 7 3/8% senior notes due 2014 who were parties to a Restructuring and Support Agreement (Agreement). The Agreement provided that, among other conditions, the recapitalization transaction was subject to the following two conditions being met by January 31, 2012: (a) a new labour agreement ratified by all six union locals at the company’s BC mills and (b) two-thirds support of all 2014 and 2016 noteholders. Since these conditions will not be met, the company will not be proceeding with a recapitalization under the CBCA.
