Welcome to The Flintkote Company Chapter 11 Reorganization Website
On May 1, 2004, The Flintkote Company filed a voluntary Chapter 11 petition in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (the "Bankruptcy Court"). On August 25, 2004, Flintkote Mines Limited filed a voluntary Chapter 11 petition with the Bankruptcy Court. On September 9, 2004, the Bankruptcy Court entered an order directing that these cases be jointly administered for procedural purposes under case number 04-11300. These cases were assigned to the Honorable Judith K. Fitzgerald. They have since been assigned to The Honorable Mary F. Walrath.
On February, 9, 2015, The Flintkote Company and Flintkote Mines Limited filed the Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization in Respect of The Flintkote Company and Flintkote Mines Limited (As Modified February 9, 2015) (the “Amended Joint Plan”) and Supplemental Disclosure Statement Regarding Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization in Respect of The Flintkote Company and Flintkote Mines Limited As Modified February 9, 2015 (the “Disclosure Statement Supplement”). The Amended Joint Plan modifies the Prior Plan to incorporate the terms of a comprehensive settlement between The Flintkote Company, Flintkote Mines Limited and Imperial Tobacco Canada Limited ("ITCAN"). Also on February 9, 2015, The Flintkote Company and Flintkote Mines Limited filed the Debtors’ Motion for Order (I) Counting Previously Solicited Votes Pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Sec. 1127(d); (II) Approving Form, Scope, and Procedures for Resolicitation of Votes on Modified Plan of Reorganization; (III) Approving Supplemental Disclosure Document; and (IV) Scheduling the Confirmation Hearing and Deadlines In Respect Thereof (the “Resolicitation Motion”). To view these documents, you should click on the Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization and Disclosure Documents links on the left side of this page.
A hearing on approval of the Resolicitation Motion and approval of the Disclosure Statement Supplement will commence on March 17, 2015 at 10:30 a.m. ET before The Honorable Mary F. Walrath in the Bankruptcy Court, 824 North Market Street, Wilmington, Delaware 19801. Any response or objection to the Disclosure Statement Supplement must be filed on or before March 9, 2015 at 4:00 p.m. ET.
If the Resolicitation Motion is granted, votes cast on the Prior Plan will be counted as votes on the Amended Joint Plan, unless changed in accordance with the procedures approved by the Bankruptcy Court. In that scenario, if you are a creditor of one or both Debtors and voted on the prior version of the Debtors’ plan in 2008 (if you hold a General Unsecured Claim) or 2009 (if you hold an Asbestos Personal Injury Claim) and do not wish to change your vote, you do not need to cast another ballot on the Amended Joint Plan.
Persons or entities exposed to, or harmed by, either of the Debtors’ asbestos or asbestos-containing products may have personal injury, wrongful death or property damage claims against the Debtors. Such persons or entities need not (i) have been diagnosed, (ii) be symptomatic, or (iii) be impaired to be affected by the Amended Joint Plan.
