SMURFIT-STONE RECEIVES FINAL COURT APPROVAL FOR $750 MILLION DIP FACILITY

 

CREVE COEUR, Mo., and CHICAGO, (February 23, 2009) —

Smurfit-Stone Container Corporation today announced that the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Wilmington, Delaware, has granted final approval of its $750 million debtor-in-possession (DIP) credit facility, which provides the company with access to the full amount of the facility.  The court had previously granted the company interim authority to access $550 million of the DIP facility.  The court also granted final approval to various other interim orders that had been entered at the commencement of the bankruptcy case.

 

Patrick J. Moore, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, “We believe that the DIP facility will provide the company with ample liquidity to operate throughout the restructuring process.  We are pleased to have completed this initial phase of the process, and remain focused on providing our customers with an uninterrupted supply of quality goods and services, and strengthening our partnerships with our vendors.  We are moving forward to restructure our debt and develop a capital structure more suited to support our long-term growth and profitability.”
