New Chapter 11 Filing – TPC Group Inc.
On June 1, 2022, Houston-based petrochemical manufacturer TPC Group Inc., and several affiliates filed a petition for relief under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code in the Bankruptcy Court for District of Delaware to pursue a “prearranged” financial restructuring (Case No. 22-10493). The Company and certain of its affiliates entered into a Restructuring Support Agreement (“RSA”), which establishes the framework for the Company’s restructuring, and, on emergence, is expected to resolve all tort liabilities arising from the Port Neches facility incident and eliminate from the Company’s balance sheet over $950 million of the Company’s approximately $1.3 billion of secured funded debt. The Company states the transactions contemplated by the RSA, once consummated, will result in the Company emerging from bankruptcy with a significantly enhanced liquidity profile by providing for various capital infusions, including $450 million in two rights offerings, $350 million in exit notes, $232 million in DIP financing which includes $85 million in new money, and another $200 million asset based revolving DIP Facility which the Company has the option to convert into an exit asset-based revolving facility.
