AmericanWest Bancorporation Plan Effective


HoldCo Advisor’s modified Third Amended Plan of Reorganization became effective, and the Company emerged from Chapter 11 protection. The Court confirmed the Plan on August 30, 2013. As previously reported, “Holdco’s Plan provides for the reorganization of the Debtor and for Holders of certain Allowed Claims to receive equity in the Reorganized Debtor, with the option for each Holder of TOPrS Unsecured Claims and General Unsecured Claims to receive instead a ‘cash out’ right of payment and/or a security that results in cash from certain of the Debtor’s assets, including Cash held by the Reorganized Debtor as of the Effective Date. The Plan Proponent believes the Plan will maximize the value of the Estate. In order to effectuate the Distributions, the Plan provides that all of the assets of the Debtor’s Estate (including Causes of Action not expressly released under the Plan) shall vest in the Reorganized Debtor. The New Board shall be appointed as of the Effective Date and shall be responsible for implementing the Plan.” This bank holding company filed for Chapter 11 protection on October 28, 2010, listing $1.7 billion in pre-petition assets.
