Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., Lehman Brothers Inc. And Lehman Brothers International (Europe) Resolve Intercompany Claims

Milestone Agreements Resolve Billions in Intercompany Claims

Clears Path for Additional Distributions to LBI and LBIE Customers and LBHI Creditors

NEW YORK and LONDON, Feb. 26, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Trustee for Lehman Brothers Inc. ("LBI"), Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. and certain of its debtor and non-debtor subsidiaries ("LBHI"), and the Joint Administrators of Lehman Brothers International ( Europe) ("LBIE") have entered into two separate agreements settling all intercompany claims between LBI on the one part, and LBHI and LBIE on the other part.  The LBI Trustee today filed motions seeking approval of the agreements with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court.

These separate agreements settle billions of dollars of complex intercompany claims and liabilities between the parties. The settlement agreements also provide a final resolution of all legal and factual issues regarding intercompany relationships between LBI and LBHI and between LBI and LBIE, avoiding the need for costly litigation.  The settlement agreements, along with a number of related motions, are subject to approval by the U.S. Bankruptcy Judge in the LBI Securities Investor Protection Act (SIPA) proceeding, the Honorable James M. Peck, and in the case of the agreement between LBI and LBIE, an order of the English High Court.

Upon approval, the settlements will allow LBI's Trustee to proceed with plans to allocate and distribute sufficient cash and securities to LBI's customer claimants, including LBHI and LBIE, to enable the LBI Trustee to satisfy valid customer claims in full. This is a critical step in obtaining significant value to return to LBIE's counterparties included in its Omnibus Claim and to LBHI's creditors.

As part of the resolution, the parties have also agreed to a protocol for the settlement of claims remaining against the LBI estate as the Trustee focuses on liquidating remaining assets and the allowance of general estate claims.  Pursuant to the protocol following court approvals, the Trustee will file periodic, public reports regarding the general estate with the Bankruptcy Court.
