Garrett Motion Receives Approval For Chapter 11 Disclosure Statement

Garrett Motion Gets Closer To Emergence From Chapter 11

Garrett plans to emerge from Chapter 11 by the end of April 2021.

Garrett Motion Inc. announced that the U.S. bankruptcy court has approved the disclosure statement in respect to Garrett’s proposed plan of reorganization, which is sponsored by a consortium of investors led by funds managed by Centerbridge Partners and Oaktree Capital Management, L.P. Garrett also has  filed an amended plan of reorganization to reflect the outcome of the successful court-approved mediation process, where Garrett and the Plan Sponsors reached a consensual agreement with the official equity committee on the terms and conditions of the plan of reorganization. Garrett expects to commence the mailing of information packages to its creditors and stockholders in connection with voting on the plan of reorganization and other related matters on or around March 19, 2021.

Olivier Rabiller, president and CEO of Garrett, said, “We are pleased with the progress in Garrett’s reorganization, which paves the way for the quick completion of the process over the next several months. Garrett will emerge as a more robust company, with the resources to continue providing customers with our advanced technologies and exceptional service, offering employees opportunities for growth and advancement, and partnering productively with our suppliers.”

Earlier this month, Garrett also successfully allocated to lenders a $1.25 billion-equivalent term loan, which, alongside a new revolving credit facility, will provide financing to fund Garrett’s emergence from bankruptcy and refinance pre-petition and debtor-in-possession facilities. Closing of the exit financing remains subject to satisfaction of customary closing conditions.

Garrett and the Plan Sponsors will now work to implement the proposed transaction. Garrett continues to target emergence from Chapter 11 by the end of April 2021, subject to receiving bankruptcy court approval of its plan of reorganization and satisfaction of customary closing conditions.
