ABWTQ hatte Mitte April Ch.11 angemeldet – der Kurs brach von $0,50 auf bis zu $0,11 zusammen – viel ist seither noch nicht passiert, die Aktie notiert aktuell bei $0,17 – bisher war hier eher eine unaufgeregte Seitwärtsbewegung angesagt.

Wichtig wäre ein Break von $0,20, um auch charttechnisch ein deutliches Breakout-Signal zu liefern.

AbitibiBowater wins approval of US$600-million loan

By Michael Bathon, BloombergJune 4, 2009

AbitibiBowater Inc., North America’s biggest newsprint maker, won final bankruptcy court approval of as much as US$600-million in financing to help fund operations while the company reorganizes.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Kevin Carey approved the loan from Fairfax Financial Holdings Ltd. and Avenue Investment LP in a hearing Thursday in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Wilmington, Del. AbitibiBowater was given approval on April 17 to borrow US$206-million of the US$600-million loan on an interim basis.

The loan “provides much needed capital to the Bowater group,” Kelley Cornish, a lawyer for AbitibiBowater, said when the company got interim approval. “We need it to establish credibility,” and to prevent the company’s competitors from taking away business.

Montreal-based AbitibiBowater and 31 units sought bankruptcy protection April 16 after U.S. lenders refused to accept a proposed debt restructuring. The company listed assets of US$9.9-billion and debt of US$8.78-billion as of Sept. 30 in its Chapter 11 petition.

“The recent downturn in the global economy has resulted in an unprecedented decline in demand for newsprint,” William G. Harvey, AbitibiBowater’s chief financial officer, said in court papers. “Negative trends in advertising, electronic data transmission and storage, and a continued expansion of the Internet, have exacerbated downward pressure on revenue.”

Mr. Harvey said in his affidavit that the loan was “sorely needed.”

AbitibiBowater also sought protection from its creditors in Canada. Quebec Superior Court Judge Clement Gascon on May 6 approved a US$100-million bankruptcy loan, which will be provided by the Bank of Montreal and backed by the Quebec government’s economic development agency. The DIP financing will let Abitibi pay in full all the receivables owed, according to an SEC filing.

AbitibiBowater has 23 pulp and paper mills and 30 wood- products plants in the U.S., Canada, the U.K. and South Korea. The company was formed in October 2007 with the merger of Abitibi-Consolidated Inc. and Bowater Inc. in a stock transaction valued at about US$4.8 billion. The newsprint makers said at the time the combination would cut costs by US$250 million a year.

What does it take to be AbitibiBowater? It takes the combination of two of the world's largest newsprint makers -- Abitibi-Consolidated and Bowater -- into one. The merger created an industry behemoth that produces millions of tons of newsprint, commercial printing paper, and pulp. The company relies on more than 25 pulp and paper mills and 30 wood products facilities in Canada, South Korea, the UK, and the US to distribute its products to customers in about 90 countries; it is one of the world's largest recyclers of newspapers and magazines. AbitibiBowater manages or owns about 55 million acres of forestland in North America. In April 2009 the company filed for bankruptcy protection in the US and Canada

Aktuell noch ein zu starker Widerstand bei $0,20, der momentan noch nicht überwunden werden kann – aktuelles Close bei $0,17.

Wer sich den Chart in der „Weekly“-Einstellung ansieht, wird erkennen, dass hier nach wie vor ein langsamer und kontinuierlicher Uptrend stattfindet – insofern also noch alles „im Lot“ – ABWTQ ist derzeit (ähnlich wie ASYTQ) noch etwas schwerfällig, solange $0,15 nicht auf SK-Basis unterschritten wird, besteht weiter solides Kurzfristpotenzial.

Wichtig wäre ein Break von $0,20, um auch charttechnisch ein deutliches Breakout-Signal zu liefern.
Aktuelles Close weiter bei $0,18 – gestern allerdings nachbörslich diese News:

Der hier bekannt gegebene $270 Mio-Deal ist der dritte Baustein der Unternehmensfinanzierung unter Chapter11 – der Break von 0,20$ sollte heute stattfinden

AbitibiBowater Wins Final OK on Receivables Financing Deal

June 11, 2009

WILMINGTON, Del. (DOW JONES) -- Abitibibowater Inc. (ABWTQ) Thursday won court approval of a $270 million accounts receivable securitization arrangement after agreeing to pay continued interest and professional fees to secured term lenders.

Judge Kevin Carey signed off on the accounts receivable arrangement at a hearing in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Wilmington, Del.

The deal from a syndicate led by Citigroup Inc. (C) allows AbitibiBowater to speed and smooth its cash flow as it continues operation under the protection of courts in Canada and the U.S.

It's the third piece of the financing that the world's largest producer of newsprint needs to keep its plants running. Carey last week granted final approval to a #206 million Chapter 11 loan, while Canadian courts approved a $100 million loan.

The new accounts receivable arrangement replaces an existing deal from Citigroup that has allowed AbitibiBowater to stay on its feet financially after its May 18 bankruptcy filing. The existing deal terminates Monday.

Term lenders who are owed $347 million had objected to the deal, demanding "adequate protection" payments, including continuing interest on their loans.

Under U.S. law, adequate protection payments are warranted when troubled companies use property that is considered collateral for their secured loans. In this case, lenders say the accounts and the cash are considered collateral.

Term lenders threatened to block the replacement arrangement for accounts receivable unless the company agreed to keep paying them interest.

Company attorney Kelley Cornish said AbitibiBowater agreed to make "modified" adequate protection payments in order to make sure the deal won approval. That includes footing the bill for professionals to look out for the term lenders in the cross-border insolvency proceeding.

AbitibiBowater, based in Montreal, south protection from creditors in an effort to deal with two lines of debt that are the heritage of the 2007 combination that created the company. One series of loans is linked to the Bowater companies; the other is linked to the Abitibi group.

Charttechnisch weiter in einem Seitwärtskanal, der im weiteren Sinn zwischen $0,11 und $0,22 und etwas enger gefasst zwischen $0,14 und $0,20 verläuft.
$0,14 muss nun als nächster Kurzfrist-Support halten, um einen neuen Abwärtstrend zu vermeiden.

Schlüssel für einen Breakout ist hier nach wie vor der Break von $0,20 auf SK-Basis.

DIP („debtor in possession“)-Finanzierungen über $270 Mio. und $600 Mio. wurden bereits vom zuständigen Insolvenzrichter abgesegnet:
Einen inspirierenden Effekt auf den Kurs hatte dies nicht – auch zusätzliches Volumen kam dadurch nicht in die Aktie – die Zahlen des aktuellen Quartalsberichts sind ebenfalls noch nicht dazu angetan, kurzfristig starkes Uptrendpotenzial diagnostizieren zu können:

Mit Stand 30.Sept.08 hatte ABWTQ $9.9Milliarden an Vermögenswerten (Assets) und $8.78Milliarden an Verbindlichkeiten.

Aktueller Stand (1.Quartal 2009): $7,67 Milliarden Assets vs. $8,38 Milliarden Liabilities.
Dabei liegen die kurzfristigen (current) Assets bei $2,2 Milliarden, die Current Liabilities bei $2,45 Milliarden.

Bei erfolgreich sich restrukturierenden Chapter11-Unternehmen (deren Kurs dann in der Regel auch signifikant rebounden kann!) ist zumindest bei den Current Assets/Liabilities eine eindeutig positive Verschiebung in den Relationen zu beobachten.

Mittelfristig könnte hier weiter Potenzial bestehen, sofern der derzeitige Boden weiter hält – allerdings ist zunächst eher mit einer Fortsetzung des statischen Verhaltens zu rechnen, man sollte also etwas Zeit mitbringen, wenn man hier spekulativ investiert bleiben möchte.

Hampton likes use of trust for pension
Posted By By Jon Thompson
Posted 3 mins ago

Kenora-Rainy River MPP Howard Hampton is throwing his weight behind a plan to put the pensions of former Abitibi workers in trust.

Comparing the proposal to pensions in the United States under bankrupt companies, Hampton said the system had worked "very well" there and that it could protect AbitibiBowater from up to $1.4 billion in liabilities as it undergoes restructuring.

"It's not just the forest sector, there are a number of sectors of the economy where pension plans are in trouble," he said. "What's important to note is unlike the auto sector where we're going to put in a whole bunch of cash, this doesn't call on the government to put in any cash. Ten to 15 years from now, the government might have to put in some money but most actuaries would tell you that's unlikely."
