MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Optima Specialty Steel, Inc. (together with its subsidiaries, collectively the “Company” or “OSS”) today announced that the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware confirmed its Plan of Reorganization (the “Plan”). The Plan confirmation comes less than seven months after the Company filed for Chapter 11.
“The achievement of this critical milestone clears a path for the Company’s emergence from Chapter 11”, said Michael Correra of Conway MacKenzie, OSS’s Chief Restructuring Officer. Correra added “Upon closing of the exit financing facility of $130 million, and Optima Acquisition’s equity contribution of $200 million, the Company will emerge, poised for growth, with a significantly deleveraged balance sheet.”
Motti Korf, Chief Executive Officer of OSS added, “I want to thank our employees, customers, suppliers, creditors, and professionals who supported us in this process. It has always been our goal to pay our creditors in full and we are one step closer to achieving such. Upon our emergence from Chapter 11, we believe OSS is poised for sustainable profitability and are excited about our future together.”
