Filing of Amended Plan of Liquidation and Disclosure Statement
As previously reported by Quicksilver Resources Inc. (the “Company”), on March 17, 2015, the Company and its U.S. subsidiaries, Barnett Shale Operating LLC, Cowtown Drilling, Inc., Cowtown Gas Processing L.P., Cowtown Pipeline Funding, Inc., Cowtown Pipeline L.P., Cowtown Pipeline Management, Inc., Makarios Resources International Holdings LLC, Makarios Resources International Inc., QPP Holdings LLC, QPP Parent LLC, Quicksilver Production Partners GP LLC, Quicksilver Production Partners LP, and Silver Stream Pipeline Company LLC (collectively with the Company, the “Debtors”) each filed a voluntary petition for relief under chapter 11 of title 11 (“Chapter 11”) of the U.S. Code (the “Bankruptcy Code”) in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (the “Bankruptcy Court”) to restructure their debt obligations and capital structure. The Debtors’ Chapter 11 cases are being jointly administered under the caption and case number, In re: Quicksilver Resources Inc., et. al., Case No. 15-10585 (Jointly Administered). All documents filed with the Bankruptcy Court are available for inspection at www.gcginc.com/cases/kwk. Information available on, or that can be accessed through, such website is not part of this Current Report on Form 8-K.
On July 5, 2016, the Debtors filed with the Bankruptcy Court the First Amended Joint Chapter 11 Plan of Liquidation for Quicksilver Resources Inc. and its Affiliated Debtors (the “Amended Plan of Liquidation”) and the accompanying Disclosure Statement for First Amended Joint Chapter 11 Plan of Liquidation for Quicksilver Resources Inc. and its Affiliated Debtors (the “Disclosure Statement”). The Bankruptcy Court entered an order approving the Disclosure Statement and related voting procedures on June 29, 2016. The Bankruptcy Court has scheduled a hearing for August 15, 2016 to consider confirmation of the Amended Plan of Liquidation. A copy of the Amended Plan of Liquidation and a copy of the Disclosure Statement are attached as Exhibit 99.1 and Exhibit 99.2, respectively, to this Current Report on Form 8-K. A summary of the material changes made to the initial Joint Chapter 11 Plan of Liquidation for Quicksilver Resources Inc. and its Affiliated Debtors that the Debtors filed with the Bankruptcy Court on May 18, 2016 (the “Initial Plan of Liquidation”) in the Amended Plan of Liquidation is set forth below.
Summary of Classification and Treatment of Claims in Amended Plan of Liquidation
The classes and types of claims and interests in the Debtors are described in the Amended Plan of Liquidation, and terms used below refer to the terms set forth in the Amended Plan of Liquidation. The Amended Plan of Liquidation generally provides that:
The foregoing description is a summary of the classification and treatment of claims set forth in the Amended Plan of Liquidation and does not purport to be complete, and is qualified in its entirety by reference to the full text of the Amended Plan of Liquidation, a copy of which is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this Current Report on Form 8-K.
As part of the global settlement resolving the claims of and against the holders of Second Lien Claims, the holders of Second Lien Claims agreed that they will not receive any distribution on account of their Allowed Second Lien Deficiency Claims. The Initial Plan of Liquidation contemplated that the plan may include a provision that such agreement by the holders of Second Lien Claims would not apply to any Allowed Unsecured Claims held by an entity that challenged the terms of the global settlement. However, such a provision ultimately was not included in the Amended Plan of Liquidation.
Information contained in the proposed Amended Plan of Liquidation is subject to change, whether as a result of amendments to the Amended Plan of Liquidation, third-party actions, or otherwise. The Amended Plan of Liquidation is subject to acceptance by certain of the Debtors’
creditors (as and to the extent required under the Bankruptcy Code) and confirmation by the Bankruptcy Court. There can be no assurances that the creditors of the Debtors will accept the proposed Amended Plan of Liquidation, or that the Bankruptcy Court will confirm the Amended Plan of Liquidation. This Current Report on Form 8-K is not intended to be, nor should it be construed as, a solicitation for a vote on the Amended Plan of Liquidation.
Cautionary Note Regarding the Company’s Common Stock
If the proposed Amended Plan of Liquidation is confirmed by the Bankruptcy Court, the holders of the Company’s common stock will not receive a distribution on account of their equity interests and the Company’s common stock will be cancelled. If certain requirements of the Bankruptcy Code are met, a Chapter 11 plan of liquidation can be confirmed notwithstanding its rejection by the Company’s equity securityholders and notwithstanding the fact that such equity securityholders do not receive or retain any property on account of their equity interests under the plan. Even though the Company’s common stock continues to be quoted on the OTC Pink Marketplace, under the proposed Amended Plan of Liquidation, it has no underlying asset value and Company’s stockholders should not view the trading activity of its common stock on the OTC Pink Marketplace or any other market or trading platform as being indicative of the value the Company’s stockholders will receive, if any, in connection with any liquidation.
