FORT WORTH, Texas, May 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- AMR Corporation, the parent company of American Airlines, Inc. and AMR Eagle Holding Corporation ("the Company"), said today that it has a joint protocol agreement under which the Company and the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors agree to jointly complete certain actions. The actions contemplated by the agreement include developing potential consolidation scenarios, but the agreement is not an indication that the company intends to pursue a transaction of any kind.
Beverly K. Goulet, AMR's Chief Restructuring Officer, Vice President - Corporate Development and Treasurer, said, "The purpose of this collaborative joint agreement with the Committee is to reinforce and assure what we have stated before: what's best for our company, our people and our financial stakeholders will be determined by the facts in a disciplined manner and process. And this includes whether American will choose to pursue any combination down the road. This is the charge of the board of directors and the leadership team to be done in close collaboration with the creditors committee. It is best for all that this process be very clear so that we are not distracted or diverted by anything that does not serve the best interests of all our company's financial and other stakeholders. To be clear, American has committed to work in collaboration with the Committee to develop only potential consolidation scenarios and this agreement does not in any way suggest that a transaction of any kind or with any particular party will be pursued."
