Champion Enterprises Files for Chapter 11 to Restructure Debt

Champion Enterprises, Inc. today announced that it and its domestic operating subsidiaries filed voluntary petitions for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. The Company is taking this action to improve its capital structure and further strengthen its competitive position. The Company's operations in the United Kingdom and Canada were not included in and will not be impacted by the filing.

In conjunction with the filing, the Company has obtained a $40 million debtor-in-possession (DIP) credit facility from certain of its current lenders that will be available to fund post-petition operating expenses and to ensure that it continues to meet its obligations to employees, customers, and trade partners. A portion of these funds will be available for use outside the U.S. to ensure the continued adequacy of working capital for the Company's non-U.S. operations.

The Company expects that this restructuring will be accomplished through a court-supervised sale of its operations. The Company chose to pursue a broader sale process in which its lenders and others may participate after opting not to accept a third party offer for the Company. To that end, the Company's investment banker has already received initial indications of interest from a number of parties expressing a desire to participate in this sale process over the coming weeks.
