Case Background

Chapter 11 Filing

On January 4, 2017 Bonanza Creek Energy, Inc. and six  affiliated debtors (collectively, the "Debtors") each filed a voluntary petition for relief under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware.  The cases are pending before the Honorable Kevin J. Carey and are jointly administered under Case No. 17-10015.

Solicitation of Prepackaged Plan

On December 23, 2016, Bonanza Creek Energy, Inc. (“Bonanza Creek”) announced that it entered into a Restructuring Support Agreement with certain holders of its 5.75% senior notes due 2023 and 6.75% senior notes due 2021, NGL Energy Partners LP and NGL Crude Logistics, LLC on the terms of a restructuring.  In order to facilitate the restructuring, Bonanza Creek and all of its subsidiaries (collectively the “Debtors”) have launched solicitation of certain creditor classes for votes to accept or reject a prepackaged plan of reorganization that contemplates the Debtors filing voluntary petitions under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware. 

Bonanza Creek expects its operations to continue in the ordinary course throughout the court-supervised process.
