Company Secures Additional $7 Million in New Financing at Exit, Bolstering Financial Resources for Enhanced Market Leadership in The On-Site Power Generation Industry
Capstone Green Energy Holdings, Inc. (the “Company”), the public successor to Capstone Green Energy Corporation (Predecessor Capstone), announced the successful completion of the restructuring of the Capstone business and emergence from Chapter 11 bankruptcy.
At emergence the Capstone business has significantly reduced its indebtedness and obtained an additional $7 million of new money financing. As a result of the restructuring transactions, the Company will operate the Capstone business through a 62.5% controlling interest in a newly formed subsidiary. Further, the outstanding common stock of Predecessor Capstone has been canceled, and common stockholders of Predecessor Capstone will receive one (1) share of common stock of the Company in exchange for each share of Predecessor Capstone that has been canceled.
The Company, as the public successor to Predecessor Capstone (CGRN) for SEC reporting purposes, continues to work to complete its restatement of previously issued financial statements and intends to complete such restatement as soon as possible. Following the completion of the restatement, the Company expects that it will list its common stock on the OTC Pink Market. The CUSIP number for the Company’s common stock following the reorganization transactions is 14067D607 and the ISIN number is US14067D6076.
“With Chapter 11 behind us and a much stronger financial position, we can now fully focus on working with our distribution partners and dramatically improve how our business runs and operates,” stated Robert Flexon, Chairman and Interim President and CEO. Mr. Flexon continued, “With a newly strengthened capital structure and improved liquidity, the Company will be much better equipped to pursue market opportunities and further enhance its market leadership as a microgrid and on-site power generation solution provider.”
John Juric, Chief Financial Officer of the Company, said, “I would like to express my appreciation to our customers, vendors, and business partners for their patience and support. I am also deeply grateful to our entire Capstone team for their hard work in continuing to execute the Company’s strategies throughout the restructuring.”
