FORT WORTH, Texas, Nov. 19, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lilis Energy, Inc. (OTC: LLEXQ) (the “Company"), an exploration and development company operating in the Permian Basin of West Texas and Southeastern New Mexico, today announced that the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas, Houston Division (the “Bankruptcy Court”) entered an order on November 17, 2020, among other things, confirming the Modified Debtors’ First Amended Joint Liquidating Chapter 11 Plan (the “Plan”) which received the overwhelming support of all creditors.
The Company expects that the effective date of the Plan ( the “Effective Date”) will be on or around December 1, 2020, assuming that all conditions precedent to the Plan’s effectiveness are satisfied or waived on or prior to such date, including the closing of the sale of substantially all of the assets of the Company and its subsidiaries pursuant to a previously disclosed Bankruptcy Court-approved purchase and sale agreement (the “Sale”). All proceeds from the Sale not distributed on the Effective Date pursuant to the Plan, and any miscellaneous assets not sold pursuant to the purchase and sale agreement or otherwise provided for in the Plan will be contributed to a liquidation trust pursuant to the Plan.
Under the Plan, the Company’s notes, instruments, certificates, credit agreements, indentures and other documents evidencing creditor claims or equity interests, including all outstanding shares of common and preferred stock of the Company, will be cancelled as of the Effective Date. Each of the Company and its subsidiaries will be dissolved and cease to exist on the Effective Date. The Plan provides for, among other things, the distribution of the proceeds from the Sale, a global settlement between and among the Company and its key economic stakeholders, and $786,750 of cash to fund recoveries for general unsecured creditors.
