Gymboree says court confirmed plan of reorganization

Sept 7 (Reuters) - Children’s apparel retailer Gymboree Corp said on Thursday that the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Virginia has confirmed its plan of reorganization.

“Gymboree expects to complete its financial restructuring process and emerge from Chapter 11 by the end of the month, after the conditions of the Plan are satisfied”, said the company in a statement.

The retailer also said a comprehensive recapitalization will be completed that will eliminate more than $900 million of debt.

Kirkland & Ellis LLP is serving as the company’s legal counsel, AlixPartners LLP is serving as its financial advisor, and Lazard is serving as its investment bank, according to the statement.

Gymboree had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in June 2017 with a plan to cut its debt by around $1 billion and close 375 stores. (Reporting by Bhanu Pratap in Bengaluru)
