Dynamic International Airways Files Chapter 11 Petition

Dynamic International Airways Files Chapter 11 Petition

PR Newswire

HIGH POINT, N.C., July 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ – US based air carrier, Dynamic International Airways has filed a voluntary Chapter 11 petition with the United States Bankruptcy Court in the Middle District of North Carolina, Greensboro Division. 

The airline’s decision to file follows upon litigation matters resulting from Hajj flights the airline operated in 2014 for Air India.  It also follows the entry of a judgement in the United States District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina affirming an arbitration award against Dynamic Intl. issued by the Canadian Arbitration Association in April 2017, which determined that Dynamic intl. was in breach of contract by failing to pay commissions to BKP Enterprises in connection with the Hajj flights.  While Debtor has filed a notice of appeal and intends to challenge the judgment and award, Dynamic Intl. has no immediate recourse to stay the judgment and has determined the commencement of the Chapter 11 case is necessary.

Dynamic Intl. provides charter and contract commercial passenger air travel services to the general public and is a licensed and certificated air carrier authorized by the U.S. Department of Transportation and the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration.  Dynamic Intl. fleet of aircraft includes six Boeing 767s which operate international flights between United States cities and territories and foreign countries.

During the Chapter 11 case, Dynamic Intl. intends to continue its normal operations and has arranged for a credit facility to facilitate both its operations while in Chapter 11 and also its ability to reorganize.

“Operating under the protection of the US Bankruptcy Court will enable us to continue to serve our customers, keep our team employed and work with our vendors while we navigate through the challenges presented.  Once we have completed the reorganization process, we expect Dynamic Intl. to emerge as a stronger company with a sound financial structure that is appropriate not only for today’s level of business activity, but also for the future,”  stated Paul Kraus, CEO.

While Dynamic Intl. experienced the expected growing pains of a new airline, it has focused on continuously improving and expanding its operations.  This week Dynamic International Airways will begin carrying Chinese passengers from Nanchang, in China’s Jiangxi province to Ontario, California, USA; the first ever flights from China to land at Ontario International Airport since commercial service began there in 1949.

PR Newswire

HOUSTON, July 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Vanguard Natural Resources, LLC (OTC: VNRSQ) (“Vanguard” or “the Company”) announces that the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas (the “Bankruptcy Court”) has entered an order (the “Confirmation Order”) confirming the Debtors’ Modified Second Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization Under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code (the “Plan”). The Company expects that the effective date of the Plan will be August 1, 2017 (the “Effective Date”). Following the Effective Date, the Company expects to be reorganized as a Delaware corporation named Vanguard Natural Resources, Inc.

The Plan provides for the reorganization of the Company and certain subsidiaries (such subsidiaries, together with the Company, the “Debtors”) as a going concern and will significantly reduce long-term debt and annual interest payments of the reorganized Debtors. Among other things, the Plan provides for:

  • a backstopped rights offering, with subscriptions for an aggregate of $255.75 million of new common stock of the Company (“New Common Stock”)
  • a fully committed $19.25 million equity investment from the Company’s second lien investors for shares of New Common Stock;
  • a full recovery for each lender under the Company’s existing revolving credit facility, consisting of (i) cash interest, (ii) cash in the amount of its pro rata share of the proceeds from the sale of the Glasscock County assets, (iii) as applicable, its pro rata share of a repayment of a portion of the borrowings outstanding under the Company’s revolving credit facility and (iv) as applicable, its pro rata share of new revolving loans and/or term loans;
  • the issuance of approximately $78 million of new second lien notes to the holders of the Company’s existing second lien notes, plus accrued and unpaid postpetition interest through the Effective Date;
  • cash payments to general unsecured creditors for their pro rata shares of a reserved cash pool;
  • the issuance of shares of New Common Stock to holders of the Company’s senior notes;
  • the issuance to the Company’s preferred unitholders of such holders’ pro rata share of (i) New Common Stock and (ii) warrants to purchase additional shares of New Common Stock at a strike price of $44.25; and
  • the issuance to the Company’s common unitholders of such holders’ pro rata share of warrants to purchase shares of New Common Stock at a strike price of $61.45.

The warrant strike prices were calculated based on the Company’s plan equity value of $20.00 per share of New Common Stock, which the Bankruptcy Court confirmed as part of the Plan.

In a Current Report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission concurrently with this release, the Company has furnished preliminary unaudited consolidated financial information for the three months and six months ended June 30, 2017 and updated projections for income and loss due to cancellation of indebtedness income.

Vanguard Natural Resources, LLC Announces Extension of Deadline for Common Unitholders to Vote on the Plan of Reorganization

PR Newswire

HOUSTON, July 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — As previously disclosed, Vanguard Natural Resources, LLC (OTC: VNRSQ) (“Vanguard” or “the Company”) has distributed to all holders of the Company’s securities a disclosure statement relating to the Second Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization Pursuant to Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code (the “Plan”), providing such holders the opportunity to vote to accept or to reject the Plan. At the initial voting deadline of July 10, 2017, each class of holders of the Company’s securities voted to accept the Plan except for holders of common units (the “Common Unitholders”). As of July 10, 2017, only 59.61% of the Common Unitholders who voted had voted to accept the Plan. Under the Bankruptcy Code, a class of equity holders has accepted a chapter 11 plan only if the holders of at least two-thirds in amount of the equity interests that voted to accept or reject the plan voted their equity interests to accept the plan.  Thus, as of July 10, 2017, the class of Common Unitholders had not accepted the Plan for purposes of the Bankruptcy Code,

Under Vanguard’s Plan, it is necessary for the class of Common Unitholders to accept the Plan in order for any Common Unitholders to receive distributions. The Company has decided, as permitted by the Bankruptcy Court, to extend the voting deadline to Monday, July 17, 2017 at noon Central Standard Time. If two-thirds of the common units that are voted on Vanguard’s Plan vote to accept the Plan, all Common Unitholders will receive distributions of three-year warrants to purchase new common stock in the reorganized company. The Company urges Common Unitholders who have not voted to submit their ballots accepting the Plan. Furthermore, the Company asks Common Unitholders who initially voted to reject the Plan to reconsider and to submit new ballots accepting the Plan by the deadline.

Court filings and other information related to the chapter 11 cases are available on the Company’s website at www.vnrllc.com/restructuring and at http://cases.primeclerk.com/vanguard, which is a website administered by the Company’s claims agent, Prime Clerk LLC.
