Quiksilver Postpones Filing of Third Quarter 2015 Form 10-Q and Cancels Scheduled Conference Call
As previously announced, Quiksilver and each of its wholly owned U.S. subsidiaries, filed voluntary proceedings in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware seeking relief under chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code on September 9, 2015. The Company concurrently announced that in connection with such chapter 11 filing, it also entered into a Plan Sponsor Agreement (“PSA”) with respect to the terms of a proposed plan of reorganization with certain funds affiliated with Oaktree Capital Management, L.P. where the Company’s existing debt will be reduced by over $500 million, including the extinguishment of all of the Company’s 2018 Notes and 10.000% Senior Notes due 2020. Given the significance of such chapter 11 filings, proposed restructuring and the other transactions to be addressed, the Company was unable to meet the filing deadline.
