Message: Midway Gold Corp. Announces Filing of Voluntary Petition for
Relief Under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code to Implement Restructuring
Denver, Colorado (FSCwire) - Midway Gold Corp. (TSX and NYSE-MKT: MDW) (the “Company” or “Midway”) today announces that the Company and certain of its direct and indirect subsidiaries (the “Debtors”) will file voluntary petitions for relief under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Colorado (the “Bankruptcy Court”). Midway will seek ancillary relief in Canada pursuant to the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act in the Supreme Court of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada.
The Company intends to restructure its business by attempting to sell non-core assets and resolving various challenges relating to Midway’s main asset, the Pan Mine project. The Debtors believe that additional time and resources are necessary to successfully maximizing value at the Pan mine. In its restructuring, Midway will be able to explore alternatives to strengthen the company, while addressing the challenges Midway has faced.
Midway will continue to operate its business as a “debtor in possession” under the jurisdiction of the Bankruptcy Court and in accordance with the applicable provisions of the Bankruptcy Code and the orders of the Bankruptcy Court.
The Company and its lenders have negotiated terms that should allow for the consensual use of the Company’s cash which will allow the Company to maintain business-as-usual operations during the restructuring process. The Company believes its current and anticipated cash resources will be sufficient to pay its ongoing expenses and maintain its business operations during the pendency of its chapter 11 cases.
The Company will file customary “First Day Motions” with the Bankruptcy Court, which, if granted, will help ensure a smooth transition to chapter 11. The motions are expected to be addressed promptly by the Bankruptcy Court.
Midway’s legal counsel is Squire Patton Boggs (US) LLP and Sender Wasserman Wadsworth P.C. Its financial advisor is FTI Consulting, Inc. and its investment banker is RBC Dominion Securities Inc.
Additional information and other materials related to the restructuring can be found on our website at www.midwaygold.com. In addition, documents related to the chapter 11 filing are available at http://dm.epiq11.com/MidwayGold.
Additional details of the Company’s business, finances, appointments and agreements can be found as part of the Company’s filings as a reporting issuer with the SEC, available at www.sec.gov and as filed with Canadian securities regulators and available at www.sedar.com.
