The following excerpt is from the company's SEC filing.
The following email was sent by Marshall Dodson, Interim CEO, to employees of Key Energy Services, Inc. on January 27, 2020.
Dear Fellow Employees:
Today, we are announcing that we have signed a Restructuring Support Agreement (RSA) with certain of our term loan lenders that will reduce our long-term debt by almost 80% and also increase our cash. We expect the transaction outlined in the RSA to close in February and it will take place
so there will not be a bankruptcy filing.
I am pleased we have reached this agreement. This transaction should eliminate the uncer tainty you and some of our customers may have felt about Keys future. It is also an important step to put parts of the past behind us while improving our financial stability as we work together to build a new Key.
Under the RSA, Key will convert approximately $242 million of our existing term loans to equity and $20 million of new term loans. This $20 million of new term loans will be part of a new, $51 million term loan. The new $51 million term loan will be cash funded for $30 million of new money, with that cash going to pay the costs of this transaction and improve our liquidity.
At the completion of this transaction, the converting term loan lenders will own approximately 97% of Keys common stock, which will be subject to dilution from new warrants issued to current shareholders and stock set aside for a new management incentive plan. We will be filing a Form
with the SEC, available on our website, that contains the details.
