Satcon Technology Corporation Announces Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Filing

Stocks in this article: SATC

Satcon Technology Corporation® (NASDAQ CM:SATC), a leading provider of utility scale power conversion solutions for the renewable energy market, today announced that the Company and its subsidiaries have filed voluntary petitions under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code. The petitions were filed in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware.

Steve Rhoades, Satcon’s President and Chief Executive Officer, said “This has been a difficult time for Satcon. After careful consideration of available alternatives, the Company’s Board of Directors determined that the Chapter 11 filings were a necessary and prudent step, allowing the Company to continue to operate while giving us the opportunity to reorganize with a stronger balance sheet and capital structure. Our goal is for Satcon to emerge from bankruptcy reorganization and continue to provide our customers with the quality products that they need.”

In conjunction with the filings, the Company filed a series of first day motions with the Court that, with Court approval, will allow it to continue to conduct business without interruption. These motions are primarily designed to minimize any impact on the Company’s customers and employees. The Company expects to obtain consent from its secured lenders to use cash collateral so as to provide the Company with continued access to funds to operate its business.

For access to Court documents and other general information about the Chapter 11 cases, please visit the website administered by the Company’s claims agent, Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions, LLC, at http://dm.epiq11.com/satcon.
