As part of the recapitalization, a substantial portion of CHC’s existing debt and equity holders agreed to provide over $100 million in new money and liquidity enhancing commitments, consisting of $60 million in an initial funding, an additional $30 million of available commitments, and $10 million from adjustments to its aircraft financing facilities.
