FM Coal and affiliates confirm plan of reorganization

FM Coal, LLC and five of its affiliates filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on September 1, 2020, in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Alabama, Southern Division. On the petition date, the Debtors had over $53 million USD in assets and over $86 million USD in liabilities, including approximately $60 million USD in secured funded debt, making it one of the largest Chapter 11 filings in the State of Alabama in 2020. The case was confirmed on March 10, 2021 and became effective March 12, 2021.

Waller served as lead bankruptcy counsel to FM Coal, LLC and its affiliates in their Chapter 11 cases. Waller worked tirelessly with the debtors’ corporate team and their financial advisors to reorganize the debtors’ debt structure, allowing them to emerge as a new organization with less secured debt and the ability to continue to do business.
