NEW YORK, Dec. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ ‐‐ On November 30, 2011 the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York entered an order confirming M. Slavin & Sons, Ltd. Plan of Reorganization and the Company closed on its recapitalization and new senior lending agreement with North Mill Capital. The 100 year old seafood distributor filed for bankruptcy protection on February 14, 2011.
“We are pleased the Company was able to successfully turn around its business and confirm a plan within ten months of the filing,” said Gary Herwitz, Managing Partner of CoMetrics Partners the turnaround management firm engaged by the Company and retained as financial advisors during the bankruptcy. “The turnaround was complex with respect to closing non‐performing business segments and selling certain assets and real estate to effectuate the recapitalization. Ultimately we were able to attract new lenders and obtain the consensus of the various constituents including the existing secured lender, unsecured creditors and labor union to confirm the plan.”
“Both CoMetrics and our counsel Jerry Luckman of SilvermanAcampora did a tremendous job getting us to the finish line,” saidCindy Slavin. She continues, “We have a new business model which is leaner, focused and as reported we are once again profitable. We never would have been able to reorganize without the advice and determination of Gary and Jerry. I also would like to thank the creditors and lenders who worked with us in making the confirmation possible.”
