As noted many times on this site, Chapter 11 cases are expensive. From paying $700-$1200/hour for senior lawyers, success based fees for financial advisors, and (in my opinion the most important) business issues such as loss of customers, suppliers, employees, etc costs start to add up. That being said, and because of certain 2005 changes to the bankruptcy code regarding exclusivity timing, more and more bankruptcies are going the prepack bankruptcy route. And to make sure things go smoothly, the creditors driving the show are offering a gift to possible dissenting classes to make sure the Chapter 11 proceedings go off without a hitch.
InSight Health Services Holdings Corp. (“Insight Imaging” or “the Company”) (OTCBB:ISGT.ob - News) today announced it had reached an agreement in principle with holders of a significant majority in aggregate principal amount of its outstanding senior secured floating rate notes due 2011 (the “Notes”) regarding a restructuring of the Notes. Insight Imaging has entered into a restructuring support agreement (the “Support Agreement”) with such holders (the “Supporting Holders”), which contemplates restructuring the Notes through a jointly agreed plan of reorganization to be filed with the bankruptcy court (the “Court”). The terms of such pre-packaged plan are set forth in a term sheet made part of the Support Agreement, but may be amended or modified in accordance with the terms of the Support Agreement (a “Qualified Plan”). The terms of the Qualified Plan contemplate an exchange of all of the Notes for all of the common stock of the reorganized Company upon exit from bankruptcy, resulting in the elimination of 100% of the Notes from the Company’s balance sheet.The Support Agreement provides that the Supporting Holders will, among other things, vote to accept a Qualified Plan and support a debtor-in-possession financing facility (the “DIP Facility”). The Company is currently in discussions with Bank of America, N.A. (“Bank of America”), the administrative agent under its current revolving credit facility, regarding the DIP Facility. The Support Agreement will require Insight Imaging and certain of its subsidiaries to file a Qualified Plan with the Court, obtain a confirmation order from the Court and effectuate the Qualified Plan within the time-frames set forth in the Support Agreement.Insight Imaging also announced that holders of greater than 75% of the principal amount outstanding of the Notes, the trustee under the indenture governing the Notes and the collateral agent under the security documents relating to the Notes have entered into an agreement to forbear from exercising their remedies under the Notes, the indenture and related security documents as a result of events of default arising from the November 1, 2010 interest nonpayment and the expiration of the applicable 30-day grace period. The forbearance period ends not earlier than December 10, 2010, by which time the Company expects to have filed a prepackaged plan of reorganization. Bank of America has also extended the forbearance period under the Company’s revolving credit facility, as amended, from December 1, 2010 to December 15, 2010.Kip Hallman, Insight Imaging’s President and CEO, stated, “This restructuring is being undertaken to eliminate more than $290 million of debt, substantially improving our cash and liquidity position. We intend to complete the reorganization as quickly as possible. In the meantime, we will continue to operate our business as usual to provide quality services to our customers and our patients. We look forward to emerging as a much stronger business, with a capital structure that will enable us to maximize the long-term value of the company.”
On May 29, 2007, InSight Health Services Holdings Corp. and InSight Health Services Corp. Filed voluntary petitions to reorganize their business under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (Case No. 07-10700) (the “2007 Reorganization”). The filing was in connection with a prepackaged plan of reorganization and related exchange offer. On July 10, 2007, the Delaware bankruptcy court confirmed InSight Health Services Holdings Corp. and InSight Health Services Corp.’s Second Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization pursuant to Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. The plan of reorganization became effective and InSight Health Services Holdings Corp. and InSight Health Services Corp. emerged from bankruptcy protection on August 1, 2007. Pursuant to the confirmed plan of reorganization and the related exchange offer, (1) all of InSight Health Services Holdings Corp.’s then existing common stock, all options for the common stock and all of InSight Health Services Corp.’s 9.875% senior subordinated notes due 2011, or senior subordinated notes, were cancelled and (2) Holders of InSight Health Services Corp.’s senior subordinated notes and Holders of InSight Health Services Holdings Corp.’s common stock prior to the effective date received 7,780,000 and 864,444 shares of newly issued common stock, respectively, in each case after giving effect to a one for 6.326392 reverse stock split of such InSight Health Services Holdings Corp.’s common stock.While the reorganization attempted to deleverage InSight Health Services Holdings Corp.’s and InSight Health Services Corp.’s balance sheets and improve their projected cash flow after debt service, both still have a substantial amount of debt, which requires significant interest payments. As of September 30, 2010, the Debtors had total indebtedness of approximately $298.3 million in aggregate principal amount, including InSight Health Services Corp.’s $293.5 million in principal amount of Senior Secured Notes.
