As a result, Edison Mission emerged from Chapter 11 yesterday, according to a notice filed with the bankruptcy court overseeing the company’s case. Along with the closing of the NRG sale, the company’s settlement with its parent, Edison International, also closed, according to the notice (see “Edison Mission bonds trade higher after Ch. 11 accord,” Feb. 19, 2014).
As reported, the Chicago bankruptcy court confirmed the company’s reorganization plan on March 11.
According to the notice, the reorganization trust that will distribute assets to the company’s creditors received roughly $3.2 billion in cash and about $400 million in NRG stock (based on about 12.67 million shares and NRG’s stock price in late morning trading of $31.90/share) as a result of the closings of the sale and settlement.
According to the company’s disclosure statement, total unsecured claims in the case will be roughly $3.824 billion.
