After a contested “cram down” plan confirmation hearing, McKool Smith helped to obtain confirmation of a Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization for HII Technologies, Inc. (“HII”) (OTCBB: HIITQ) and its subsidiaries on Friday, April 15, 2016. 

The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas approved the restructuring that allows HII to emerge as a non-public oilfield service company owned by its former secured and unsecured creditors.  The reorganized HII will maintain oilfield service operations and assets without any legacy debt.  The creditors will also receive distributions from a Litigation Trust.  The Litigation Trust is being funded by former secured creditors of HII.  Net Litigation Trust recoveries will pay 45 percent to unsecured creditors and 55 percent to secured lenders under the Debtor-in-possession lending facility. 

HII and its affiliates were represented by McKool Smith attorneys Chris Johnson and Ben Hugon, along with securities counsel Greg Carney of Indeglia and Carney, LLP.
