Davis Polk advised an ad hoc group of term loan lenders in connection with the chapter 11 cases of Sheridan Holding Company I, LLC and its affiliated debtors (collectively, “Sheridan I”). Sheridan I filed a voluntary petition for relief under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code on March 23, 2020 and Sheridan I’s plan of reorganization (the “Plan”) was confirmed by the Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas, Houston Division on March 24, 2020. This is the first one-day “pre-pack” in the Southern District of Texas, Houston Division. On March 30, 2020, Sheridan I emerged from bankruptcy as RDV Resources, Inc.
Under the fully consensual plan, the holders of Sheridan I’s prepetition term loans and prepetition revolving loans exchanged their debt for (a) 100% of the new common equity in the reorganized company (subject to dilution by certain warrants) and (b) their pro rata share of a $150 million secured exit facility.
RDV Resources, Inc. has a portfolio of mature oil and gas assets in onshore basins in the United States.
