We are gratified to have the support of our plan sponsor, Nimbos Holdings, as well as the Official Creditors’ Committee.”

Ken Woolley, the principal behind Nimbos Holdings and the plan’s financial backer, said, “We are very excited about the company’s upcoming emergence from chapter 11, and look forward to a very successful future with the company.”
