Libbey Glass Inc.
Case No. 20-11439
On June 1, 2020, Libbey and its U.S.-based subsidiaries filed voluntary petitions for a court-supervised reorganization under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware. Libbey expects to use the court-supervised restructuring process to strengthen its balance sheet, to navigate the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, and better position the Company for the future.
Libbey is continuing constructive discussions with its lenders and other stakeholders regarding the terms of a consensual financial restructuring plan and is focused on achieving a resolution as expeditiously as possible. The Chapter 11 process only relates to Libbey’s U.S.-based business and does not include its international subsidiaries in Canada, China, Mexico, the Netherlands and Portugal, which are operating in the normal course of business.
The Company is continuing to serve customers and end users globally, providing an extensive line of high-quality glassware and other tabletop products. In connection with the Chapter 11 filing, Libbey has received a commitment for up to $160 million in debtor-in-possession (“DIP”) financing from its current lenders, including a $100 million revolving credit facility and a $60 million term loan. Following court approval, the Company expects this financing, together with cash flow from operations, to support the business during the court-supervised process.
Libbey’s case has been assigned to the Honorable Laurie Selber Silverstein. The Case No. is 20-11439. The Docket can be accessed at https://cases.primeclerk.com/Libbey/Home-DocketInfo or through the website maintained by U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware.
