Atif A. Abdulmalik, Chief Executive Officer of Arcapita said, "Reorganizing our business under Chapter 11 in the United States has been a challenging process, but it provided an effective framework to enable us to restructure the firm for the benefit of our investors, creditors, and other stakeholders. We are pleased to have completed very constructive negotiations with our creditors through a transparent and public process, which has resulted in overwhelming support for the Plan."
Abdulaziz Al Jomaih, Vice Chairman of Arcapita 's Board of Directors, added, "In the face of actions by certain non-bank creditors that could have destroyed significant value for all stakeholders, the Board made the difficult decision to seek the protection provided by Chapter 11 in the United States. We appreciate the strong support that we have received from our stakeholders for the Plan of Reorganization."
