  • Judge gives J&J talc unit's Ch. 11 dismissal bid prominence


    Jan 14 -
    Johnson & Johnson's bankrupt talc subsidiary will litigate its quest for an injunction barring claims against non-debtor entities at the same time as talc injury claimants argue for the bad-faith dismissal of the Chapter 11 case. A New Jersey bankruptcy judge said it made sense to delay the motion of LTL Management to make permanent the injunction that has stopped the prosecution of talc claims against J&J and others until the claimants' motion to dismiss the company's Chapter 11 case is heard. LTL was spun off from Johnson & Johnson - receiving the company's talc liabilities, including more than 38,000 personal injury claims - and put into Chapter 11 in a N.C. bankruptcy court in October.

  • Nordic Aviation gets OK to tap $170M DIP from lenders


    Jan 14 -
    Aircraft leasing company Nordic Aviation Capital got approval from a Virginia bankruptcy judge to tap into $170 million in debtor-in-possession financing after saying it has close to 90% of its secured noteholders on board with its restructuring plan. Nordic, which filed for Chapter 11 in December with more than $6.3 billion in funded debt, was founded in 1990 and is currently the world's largest lessor of aircraft to regional airlines. It said it was facing massive losses as COVID-19 travel restrictions made it impossible for its customers to make their lease payments. It said it had reached a restructuring support agreement with the holders of about 73% of its funded debt that will convert just over $3.6 billion in secured debt to equity and provide for a $377 million new rights offering backstopped by senior lenders.
