January 22, 2020 – The Debtors requested Court authority to access (i) $2.81bn of debtor-in-possession (“DIP”) financing and (ii) use cash collateral  [Docket No. 56].

The DIP financing is comprised of (i) a $2.067bn term loan facility (the "DIP Term Loan Facility") and (ii) a $743.0mn DIP letter of credit facility (the "DIP Letter of Credit Facility"). 

Breaking the DIP financing down further, the DIP Term Loan Facility includes (a) $1.2bn in new money term loans, with $550.0mn of that to be made available upon issuance of the interim DIP order, and (b) the roll-up of $866.0mn in pre-petition term loans ($66.0mn of which relates to interest and all of which is to be rolled-up upon issuance of a final DIP order). The DIP Letter of Credit Facility includes (a) $543.0mn in new letters of credit, with $300.0mn of that available upon issuance of the interim DIP order, and (b) the roll-up of $200.0 in pre-petition letters of credit upon issuance of a final DIP order. So, across the two facilities, $1.743bn of new money to be made available upon issuance of the interim DIP order.

The DIP motion summarizes the arrangements as follows (although the $66.0mn of interest relating to the DIP Term Loan Facility is not referenced): "The proposed DIP financing facility provides for an additional $1.2 billion of liquidity and $543 million of new LC capacity during the pendency of these chapter 11 cases. The Debtors are seeking to draw $550 million of the new term loans and have access to up to $300 million of new LC capacity upon entry of the Interim DIP Order. Effective upon entry of the proposed Final DIP Order, the Debtors are seeking to ‘roll-up’ the amounts provided under the Prepetition Superpriority Credit Agreement, as well as draw on the remaining $650 million of term loan capacity and obtain access to the incremental $243 million of LC capacity, putting the total amount of the DIP financing facility at approximately $2.0 billion in term loans and $743 million of LC capacity."

The DIP motion continues, “The Debtors commenced these cases with a restructuring transaction memorialized in its prepackaged chapter 11 plan, which is supported by super-majorities of its secured and unsecured funded and unfunded debt creditors….The proposed $2.81 billion debtor-in-possession financing facility (the ‘DIP Facility’) is one of the central pillars of the proposed restructuring transaction, and is an integral piece to the Debtors’ ability to commence these chapter 11 cases in a coordinated fashion with a high-degree of consensus, as well as emerge with committed financing to support the Debtors’ long-term business plan. 

As detailed in the Castellano Declaration, the Debtors faced a liquidity crisis in October 2019 and required an immediate infusion of capital. The Debtors responded by negotiating a financing facility in a matter of days that provided runway to explore value-maximizing, strategic alternatives and potentially implement a consensual restructuring transaction. On October 21, 2019, the Debtors executed a $1.7 billion bridge financing facility with their secured lenders under the Prepetition Super-priority Credit Agreement, which provided consensual priming liens on all of the collateral securing the Prepetition Credit Agreement.

As further detailed in the Castellano Declaration, the Debtors’ businesses require both significant working capital and letter of credit (‘LC’) capacity. The Debtors use working capital to fund their operations and the LC capacity to direct LC issuing banks to provide LCs to the Debtors’ customers that support performance and financial metric commitments in the Debtors’ contracts with its customers. The Debtors’ need for both liquidity and LC support to successfully prosecute its business plan is reflected in the design of the Debtors’ existing financial agreements as well as the contemplated DIP and exit facilitates.

The DIP Facility provides the Debtors with critical liquidity and LC support. Importantly, no other financing was available to the Debtors on better (or any) terms and no potential DIP Lender offered to lend on any basis other than as contemplated by the DIP Facility. As of the Petition Date, without access to the DIP Facility, the Debtors are cash-flow negative with a total unrestricted cash balance insufficient to operate their business and continue paying their debts as they come due. The relief requested by this Motion is necessary both to preserve the Debtors’ operations as well as to provide the Debtors with a path forward for negotiating and consummating a restructuring transaction. Absent entry into the DIP Facility, the Debtors will have insufficient liquidity to continue operating in the ordinary course and their restructuring efforts will come to a grinding halt. The Debtors have been, and remain, committed to evaluating all value-maximizing paths forward, both with respect to the DIP Facility and with respect to the terms of overall restructuring transaction. Additionally, the DIP Facility is a critical component of the overall restructuring as well as the Debtors’ proposed exit financing commitments.”
