Hercules Offshore files for Court approval of prepackaged reorganization plan

Hercules Offshore, Inc.

Hercules Offshore, Inc. has filed a pre-packaged plan of reorganization under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code to continue its financial restructuring of the Company. The Company anticipates that, among other things, it will receive court authority to pay employee wages and benefits without interruption and continue to pay trade creditors and suppliers in the ordinary course of business. The Chapter 11 reorganization is expected to conclude in approximately 45-60 days.

As announced on July 13, the pre-packaged plan provides a substantial deleveraging transaction pursuant to which more than $1.2 billion of the Company's outstanding senior notes would be converted to 96.9% of new common equity, and $450 million in new debt financing would be provided by those holders of the senior notes who wish to participate on a pro rata basis (with the full amount backstopped by certain members of the steering group of noteholders), which would fully fund the remaining construction cost of the Hercules Highlander and provide additional liquidity to fund the Company's operations.
