On January 24, 2017, Goodman Networks Incorporated and its subsidiaries entered into a restructuring support agreement with holders of the Company’s 12.125% Senior Secured Notes due 2018 who hold more than 75% of the outstanding Notes and more than 80% of the Company’s equity holders regarding a comprehensive financial restructuring transaction that will result in a stronger balance sheet for the Company. The restructuring will be implemented through a prepackaged Chapter 11 bankruptcy in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas. The Company will continue to operate its business as usual in all respects and the Chapter 11 filing is not expected to have an impact on the Company’s operations. The proposed transaction, among other things, will reduce the Company’s long term debt by approximately $212.5 million through an exchange of the Notes for a cash paydown, new 8% secured notes issued by the Company, and preferred and common equity of the Company.
