"Judge Announces Intention To Confirm Peabody Energy Plan Of Reorganization, Paving Way For Emergence" $BTUUQ

Peabody Energy announced today that the judge presiding over the company's Chapter 11 process in United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Missouri has ruled that he intends to confirm the company's amended plan of reorganization after finalization of language regarding a settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice.

The plan, which received overwhelming support from creditors with an overall approval rate of 93 percent and unanimous acceptance by all 20 voting classes, articulates Peabody's strategy to emerge from the Chapter 11 process with a strong balance sheet, well positioned to build a successful future for the company's stakeholders. Peabody expects to emerge from Chapter 11 in early April 2017, less than one year after commencing the Chapter 11 process.
Naturally, there is still a bid of $1.78 for the stock.
