Aegean: U.S. Bankruptcy Court clears Mercuria Energy take over

27 Mar 2019

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court in New York on Tuesday (26 March) approved the restructuring plan of New York listed bunkering firm Aegean Marine Petroleum Network Inc. (Aegean).

“Notwithstanding anything herein or the Plan or any Plan Document to the contrary, the Final DIP Order shall survive the Effective Date,” stated the document signed by Bankruptcy Judge Michael Wiles.

The development clears the way for Mercuria Energy to take over Aegean, and allows Mercuria’s Debtor-in-Possession financing (DIP) plan to start in April 2019.

“The Debtors or Reorganized Debtors, as applicable, or the Litigation Trust shall resolve Disputed Claims against the Estates consistent with the provisions of Article VIII of the Plan,” it states.

“The Reorganized Debtors shall file post-Confirmation disbursement and status reports every six (6) months until the Chapter 11 Cases are closed by means of a final decree, converted to a case under chapter 7, or dismissed, whichever happens earlier.”
