Dubai World: 99% of Creditors Agree Rescheduling


According to Asa Fitch at The National DW has issued a statement that roughly 99% of creditors have agreed the terms of the restructuring.

An outcome never much in doubt once the steering committee representing 60% of the amount of the debt agreed the terms.  The remaining banks knew that it would take just a few of their number to reach the "magic" special DIFC Court threshold for a potential cramdown.  So why not sign up and get the early bird bonuses?  Also the rescheduling represents the better alternative for recovering the maximum amount of money.

An accomplishment for DW.  But now comes the more difficult bit.  Meeting the terms of repayments.  And in order to do so, probably parting with some of the "Vision's Dreams" at a loss.
