Propex announces court approval for $60mn credit facility
Jan '08
Propex Inc announced that the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Tennessee (the Court) has approved the previously announced $60 million credit facility on an interim basis with immediate access to $20 million as requested by the company, which is available to complement existing cash on hand.

This will provide Propex with immediate and sufficient liquidity to operate its business on an ongoing basis. As is customary under Chapter 11 procedures, a final hearing for further funding under the credit facility is scheduled for February 13, 2008.

In addition, the Court also approved all other First-Day Motions it considered, including the motion to pay employee wages and benefits and the motion to use the company's existing cash management system which enables Propex's business to continue to operate in a normal manner.

“We are pleased to have received the interim Court approval of our $60 million credit facility and other First-Day Motions as we expected,” said Joe Dana, President of Propex Inc. “We are focusing our efforts on restructuring our balance sheet in order to reduce our debt and emerge from Chapter 11 a stronger and more nimble Propex better able to serve our customers.”

Propex is the leading producer of geosynthetic, concrete, furnishing and industrial fabrics and fiber with more than 2,500 employees world-wide in manufacturing, distribution and office facilities.
