Source Interlink Companies Plan of Reorganization Now Approved

BONITA SPRINGS, Fla.--Source Interlink Companies is pleased to announce that its Plan of Reorganization was approved on Thursday. This official confirmation clears the way for the Company to emerge from the reorganization proceedings as planned in early June. The reorganization process lasted an unprecedented 31 days! With the continued help and support from vendors, customers, employees and the community, Source was able to continue operations in the ordinary course throughout the reorganization proceedings.

Over the next few days Source will finalize the legal process and will emerge as a privately held company. As promised the lenders cancelled nearly $1 billion of the company's existing debt and have provided approximately $100 million in additional liquidity to the company. The restructuring materially reduces Source’s interest expense and debt levels, and substantially improves the company’s free cash flow allowing Source to capitalize on several operational opportunities to further improve and grow its business.

The current management will remain in place and the new company will select a regular board of directors after the legal process is finalized.

In a statement Friday Chairman and CEO Greg Mays said, “Once again, I appreciate the positive attitudes, hard work and continued support that each of our business partners have demonstrated during this period. Due to the restructuring, employee efforts, and good managing, we can now look forward to a more prosperous future.”
