RP Holdings Inc. Restructuring
Haynes and Boone was engaged by RP Holdings Inc. in August 2011 to assist in its restructuring efforts. At that time, the company had just hired a new CEO, was facing liquidity challenges due to the nationwide stoppage of foreclosure prosecutions, and had completed internal audits showing a total of approximately $20 million was owed to it by its two largest customers. Its senior secured facility was due to mature in August 2012. In the fall of 2012, the company pursued a restructuring transaction with its private equity sponsors, the secured lenders and the two law firms, which failed to materialize on the eve of a possible closing in early January 2012.
