Weatherford International plc (WFT) declared recently that it has executed a restructuring support agreement (the “Restructuring Agreement”) with a group of its senior noteholders (the “Ad Hoc Noteholder Group”) that collectively holds or controls about 62% of the Company’s senior unsecured notes. The projected comprehensive financial restructuring would significantly reduce the Company’s long-term debt and related interest costs, provide access to additional financing and establish a more sustainable capital structure.
The transaction results in pro forma net leverage at or below 2.7x at year-end 2019. The Company’s business plan implies noteworthy free cash flow generation under the new capital structure, resulting in reduction of net leverage to 1.8x in 2020 and 1.2x in 2021.
Weatherford anticipates to implement the Restructuring Agreement through a “pre-packaged” Chapter 11 process and anticipates to file U.S. chapter 11 and Irish examinership proceedings (collectively, the “Cases”). As part of this process, Weatherford intends to continue engaging in negotiations with, and begin soliciting votes from, its creditors in connection with a projected Plan of Reorganization before filing.
