Case Background

On October 31, 2016, BPS US Holdings Inc. (n/k/a Old BPSUSH Inc.) and 17 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. 16-12373.

On October 31, 2016, Performance Sports Group announced that it entered into an asset purchase agreement with a group of investors led by Sagard Capital Partners, L.P. and Fairfax Financial Holdings for the sale of the Company. In conjunction with this development, Performance Sports Group has filed voluntary petitions under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the District of Delaware and commenced proceedings under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act (the “CCAA”) in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice.

The Company believes that pursuing a sale through a court supervised restructuring process represents the best path forward for the Company and its stakeholders.

Performance Sports Group expects to continue operating its business and serving customers as usual throughout the court-supervised process.
