    Emas Chiyoda Subsea seeks protection under Chapter 11

    News // February 28, 2017

    Emas Chiyoda Subsea has filed a voluntary petition for reorganisation under chapter 11 of the US Bankruptcy Code.

    The company said it hoped doing so would facilitate the company’s financial and operational restructuring. The petitions were filed in the Southern District of Texas Bankruptcy Court.

    In connection with the filing, ECS has received a commitment on an up to US$90 million financing facility from Chiyoda Corporation and Subsea 7.

    Subject to bankruptcy court approval, the financing will be made available to support the company’s continuing business operations, minimise disruption to its worldwide projects and make necessary operational changes.

    In a statement Emas Chiyoda Subsea said: "The restructuring will provide an opportunity to focus on strengthening financial and operational systems, enhancing the company’s efforts to weather the current challenges."
