iHeartMedia Creditors Support Plan of Reorganization
|RADIO ONLINE | Monday, December 3, 2018|
iHeartMedia has announced voting results for the company's Fifth Amended Joint Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization. Voting results indicate that every class of creditors entitled to vote has voted to approve. More than 90% of the votes cast by creditors and shareholders who participated in the vote approved the plan, which will reduce iHM's funded debt by about $10.3 billion to $5.75 billion. The Plan also calls for the separation of iHeartMedia's radio and outdoor advertising businesses. With the support of its creditors and the expected confirmation of the Plan, iHeartMedia expects to complete its restructuring process and exit Chapter 11 in early 2019.
Final voting results will be filed with the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas, Houston Division, prior to the hearing to confirm the Plan. Kirkland & Ellis LLP is serving as legal counsel to iHeartMedia, Moelis & Company is serving as the company's investment banker, and Alvarez & Marsal is serving as the company's financial advisor.
