Energy Future Postpones Hearing on Restructuring Agreement

Reuters reported that an attorney for bankrupt Energy Future Holdings told a court hearing that it will delay seeking court approval of a restructuring support agreement that lays a path out of Chapter 11.

According to Reuters, at the start of a hearing on a request to move the bankruptcy case to Dallas from Wilmington, DE, Kirland & Ellis partner Edward Sassower said Energy Future will postpone to June 30 from June 6 a hearing to approve its restructuring support agreement.

Reuters said the agreement commits the company to meet certain milestones on its way to slash its $42 billion in debt. Creditors wanted more time to study the deal, Reuters notes.
