Pérez-Llorca, Davis Polk advise Lone Star on GTT Communications restructuring

Pérez-Llorca has advised Lone Star on the Spanish FDI aspects of the restructuring of GTT Communications, with Davis Polk leading on the global antitrust and FDI clearances for the transaction


The deal is in connection with the chapter 11 restructuring of GTT Communications, Inc. On December 28, 2022, GTT’s second amended third modified plan of reorganization was confirmed by the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York and the company emerged from chapter 11 pursuant to the Amended Plan on December 30, 2022.

On October 31, 2021, GTT filed a prepackaged plan of reorganization that was confirmed by the Bankruptcy Court on December 16, 2021. Following unforeseen delays to effectiveness and associated impacts to go-forward liquidity, GTT filed the Amended Plan on November 27, 2022. Pursuant to the Amended Plan, GTT’s funded debt will be reduced by $2.8 billion, with holders of secured term loans receiving 94.5% of the reorganized equity and approximately $783 million in take-back debt.
