Colt Defense Announces Financing Agreement With Creditors

June 25, 2015, 07:05 AM
Filed Under: Bankruptcy

Colt Defense has entered into a consensual agreement under which Colt’s secured lenders will provide $20 million in debtor in possession credit facilities to allow for ordinary course business operations during the Chapter 11 process.

Consistent with the plan announced by the company earlier this month, the financing provides Colt with adequate liquidity to meet all of its obligations to its customers, vendors, suppliers and employees during a court-supervised restructuring process.

“The financing we have secured today is an important step forward,” said Keith Maib, Chief Restructuring Officer of Colt Defense LLC. “It reflects shared confidence in Colt as an iconic American business among all of the Company’s key stakeholders. As we continue to prepare for and pursue a sale process in accordance with the plan we previously filed with the Court, the terms of this financing also provide us with greater flexibility to reach a final consensual agreement that aligns with our ultimate goal of swiftly and surely deleveraging the Company while maximizing continuity in Colt’s business operations.”

“Most importantly, today’s announcement underscores that nothing has changed in our operations as we remain sharply focused above all on delivering for our customers while also being a good commercial partner to our vendors and suppliers,” Maib concluded.

Perella Weinberg Partners L.P. is acting as financial advisor of the company, Mackinac Partners LLC is acting as restructuring advisor of the company and O’Melveny & Myers LLP is the company's legal counsel.
