Greenwood Village, Col. (August 26, 2015) - Molycorp, Inc. (OTC: MCP), ("Molycorp" or the "Company") announced today that it will transition its Mountain Pass Rare Earth Facility to a "care and maintenance" mode while it plans to continue serving its rare earth oxide customers via its production facilities in Estonia and China. Customers of the Company’s rare earth magnetic materials, as well as its rare earth-based water treatment products, will not be impacted.
Greenwood Village, Col. (July 22, 2015) - Molycorp, Inc. (NYSE: MCP), ("Molycorp" or the "Company") the only global, vertically-integrated producer of rare earth products used in many electronic, transportation, industrial and clean energy applications, today moved forward with its Chapter 11 process and received Court approval for an improved debtor-in-possession (DIP) financing package provided by Oaktree Capital Management LP ("Oaktree").
The approved DIP facility of new net financing of $130 Million represents significant improvement over the interim DIP approved by the Court on July 2, 2015, including additional liquidity, reduced costs, and additional time to develop a plan of reorganization that would be in the best interest of all parties.
Greenwood Village, Col. (July 2, 2015) - Molycorp, Inc. (OTC: MCPIQ), ("Molycorp" or the "Company") the only global, vertically-integrated producer of rare earth products used in many electronic, transportation, industrial and clean energy applications, reported today that it had received approval from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court on $22 million in interim debtor-in-possession (DIP) financing provided by an affiliate of Oaktree Capital Management. The new funds will support operations going forward for an interim period while the Company continues to negotiate with Oaktree and a group representing the secured 10% noteholders, both of which represent secured creditors that have presented competing DIP lending proposals.
On June 25, 2015, Molycorp, Inc. and 20 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.
