Dex One And SuperMedia File Pre-Packaged Plans Of Reorganization As Part Of Merger Process

Stocks in this article: DEXO SPMD

Dex One Corporation (NYSE: DEXO) and SuperMedia Inc. (NASDAQ: SPMD) today announced that each company has received the requisite shareholder approval for their proposed merger and they both have voluntarily filed for Chapter 11 in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (the “Court”), to implement “pre-packaged” Plans of Reorganization.

Dex One and SuperMedia intend to use this strategic process to facilitate the completion of their merger announced on Aug. 21, 2012. The operations of both companies are expected to continue without interruption during the restructuring process. Subject to Court approval of the plans, the companies believe the merger will be completed within 45 to 60 days. These plans intend to preserve the interests of all investors without any impairment to existing Dex One or SuperMedia equity holders and Dex One note holders.

“This process will facilitate the completion of our merger with Dex One and ensure the financial and strategic benefits of the merger identified and communicated previously remain unchanged,” said Peter McDonald, president and CEO of SuperMedia. “A substantial majority of our lenders and stockholders have pledged their support for this transaction and we remain committed to closing it in the first half of this year. The new company will be the trusted marketing consultant to help local businesses across the United States grow.”

“This combination is good for customers, investors, consumers and employees, and creates a stronger company that can penetrate more of the local marketplace,” said Alfred Mockett, CEO of Dex One. “By joining two industry leaders to create a national provider of social, local and mobile marketing solutions, we believe Dex One and SuperMedia will accelerate the transformation of the newly combined company and be positioned to deliver outstanding service and support. Throughout the merger process, the employees from both companies have demonstrated great dedication, and remain focused on exceeding the needs of local businesses in the markets we serve.”
