BankruptcyData notes, “The Plan means that the Reorganized Debtors will continue to operate its businesses going forward and does not mean that the Debtors will be liquidated or forced to go out of business. Under the Plan, Chaparral Energy’s unsecured bondholders and general unsecured creditors will own 100% of the Company’s ownership interest, subject to some dilution. The Debtors’ capital structure, upon emergence, will include its cash on hand and a reserve based lending facility with an initial borrowing base of $225 million, as well as an additional $150 million term loan. Both the revolver and term loan will mature in four years. In addition, the Plan includes $50 million of new money equity from a rights offering. The Company expects to have liquidity in excess of $100 million upon emergence.”
