New York – Feb. 24, 2021 – Global law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP was counsel in two restructurings named on the Turnarounds & Workouts “Successful Restructurings of 2020” list.
Greenberg Traurig’s Restructuring & Bankruptcy Group advised on the following matters:
- Company counsel for AAC Holdings, Inc. AAC Holdings, the publicly traded parent of American Addiction Centers, which operates 26 addiction recovery facilities in eight states, filed for Chapter 11 protection in Delaware with in excess of $550 million in debt. It pursued a toggle Chapter 11 plan whereby the debtor exposed the assets to a 363 sale process. The lenders ultimately became a plan sponsor. The plan was confirmed on Oct. 20, 2020—within 122 days of the bankruptcy filing. Pursuant to the confirmed plan, a portion of the prepetition secured bank debt and the debtor-in-possession (DIP) credit facility were rolled into exit financing. The participating lenders also received warrants in the company. A portion of the prepetition junior bank debt was converted into equity in the company. The team included Restructuring & Bankruptcy Practice Co-Chair David B. Kurzweil; Shareholders Nancy A. Peterman, Alison Elko Franklin, Eric J. Howe, Dennis A. Meloro, Pallav Raghuvanshi and Kenneth Zuckerbrot; and Associate Matthew A. Petrie.
- Lender’s counsel for iQor Holdings, Inc. iQor Holdings, a global provider of technology-enabled business process outsourcing and product support services, commenced its Chapter 11 cases with a plan of reorganization supported by 100% of the creditors that submitted a ballot. Through its prepackaged Chapter 11 cases, iQor eliminated about $500 million in funded debt obligations, obtained $175 million in exit financing, and left general unsecured creditors unimpaired. iQor’s operations span North America, Europe, and Asia, and prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, iQor employed approximately 40,000 people globally. The team included Restructuring & Bankruptcy Practice Co-Chairs David B. Kurzweil and Shari L. Heyen, and Shareholders Timothy W. Bratcher and David M. Guess.
