Creditors Approve Fraser Papers' Restructuring Plan
Feb. 8, 2011 - Fraser Papers Inc. and its subsidiaries ("Fraser Papers" or the "Company") announced today that creditors of the Company approved an amended consolidated plan of compromise and arrangement (the "Amended Plan") at a meeting of creditors (the "Meeting") held in Toronto. The Amended Plan was filed with the Ontario Court overseeing Fraser Papers' restructuring proceedings under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act ("CCAA") on January 28, 2011 and was supported by PricewaterhouseCoopers, the court-appointed Monitor and other significant stakeholders.
The Amended Plan was supported by 94.7% of the votes (in number) represented at the Meeting and 75.3% of the value of claims who voted. Under criteria set out in the CCAA, the Amended Plan required approval of the majority of creditors in number and 66 2/3% of the dollar value of claims voting at the Meeting.
The Amended Plan contemplates the distribution of all proceeds of the sale of the Company's assets to unsecured creditors, once all secured claims are paid in full.
As a result of the approval of the Amended Plan, the Company intends to appear before the Ontario Court on February 10, 2011 and the U.S. Court on February 11, 2010 to seek the necessary court approvals to implement the Amended Plan.
