Davie Yards Continues Restructuring Process

Tuesday, November 02, 2010

Davie Yards announced today that it has obtained an order from the Québec Superior Court extending the stay of proceedings ordered by the Court to January 21, 2011, the whole pursuant to the companies' Creditors Arrangement Act (CCAA). The extension will allow Davie to continue to discuss with potential industrial investors, to pursue its efforts to qualify for the National Shipbuilding Procurement Strategy (NSPS), and to develop and eventually submit a plan of arrangement to its creditors under CCAA.

Since the previous court hearing in September, Davie has received formal expressions of interest from two potential investors in addition to having ongoing discussions with others. Davie has also been shortlisted in the qualification process to become one of the two dedicated yards for building large ships in the NSPS. Davie will go through a benchmarking and capability assessment in the next few weeks related to this qualification process.

The court also granted Davie an extension of the exemption to hold a shareholders' meeting until March 31, 2011.
