CMI's Ch. 11 filing dismissed by courts
July 13, 2001,
Columbia, SC — The involuntary Chapter 11 petition filed by holders of CMI's Senior Subordinated Notes has been dismissed by a United States District Court.
The three holders who had originally filed the petition with the U.S. District Court, District of Delaware, had requested the dismissal along with CMI in June.
Gorga went on to say that CMI and its bondholders were engaged in "extensive discussions" to restructure the company's capital structure.
Under the dismissal order, CMI will make its April interest payment owed with respect to the notes while all parties involved will conduct talks in an effort to negotiate an overall restructuring of the notes.
The involuntary Chapter 11 petition was filed on May 3 by Chancellor/Triton, Mt. Washington and Atlantic Global, which held 9.5 percent of CMI's Senior Subordinated Notes. Chancellor/Triton and Mt. Washington were each owed $2.6 million, while Atlantic Global was owed $6.3 million.
CMI had been a major fabrics supplier for home furnishings, woven apparel and industrial products manufacturers. Its products had been made into comforters, bedspreads and sheets as well as various soft window coverings. However, the last year has seen the company's exit from the greige goods business with the closing of its Clinton, SC, plant and the sale of its Clarkesville, GA, plant to a management group.
