Abstract

This is the third of a three-case series (105-034-1 to 105-036-1). After having valued the company and persuaded creditors, an agreement had been reached by the company and the venture capitalist, to sell debt at a 70% discount, to be immediately followed by a debt-for-equity swap, so the venture capitalist would take control of the company. A few days before the deal was to be closed, the venture capital investor withdrew and announced its decision of calling off the purchase offer. At that time, Cementaciones Petroleras and its main creditor carried out some inquiries to find out the reasons for this decision. Additionally, they have to come up with some alternatives to proceed with the operation and relieve the financial burden. Without this debt discount the company could quickly go bankrupt. The case series is also available in Spanish ‘E105-034-1 to E105-036-1’.
