Managed the orderly wind-down via Chapter 11 proceeding
This oilfield services company designed and produced a nanotechnology ceramic proppant used in oil and gas “fracking” but the operations never achieved sufficient volume and economies of scale to reach a profitable cost structure prior to the macroeconomic downturn in that industry. The Chapter 11 debtor in Houston, TX raised approximately $150MM in equity, and at the time of filing, owed more than $40MM in senior and subordinated secured debt.
Acted as CRO on behalf of estate to take company through Chapter 11 bankruptcy
Managed the sell of intellectual property and assets
Operations were ceased and an orderly winddown was conducted through a Chapter 11 proceeding wherein the intellectual property was sold to Halliburton Energy Services and the Houston research labs and Arkansas manufacturing facility were sold to Chemject International.
