Evergreen was in financial distress leading up to its acquisition by Erickson, with suppliers withholding parts due to unpaid bills and a resulting inability to maintain its aircraft. As a result of this financial situation, it was unlikely Evergreen would be able to pay off the substantial second lien debt it owed to a group of private equity funds collectively known as ZM Funds. This consortium held, at the time, 60% of Erickson stock. Then on March 20, 2013, Erickson announced it had agreed to acquire Evergreen for $250 million—a deal that effectively allowed ZM Funds to exchange approximately $120 million in distressed debt of Evergreen Helicopters for millions of Erickson shares.
The investigation concerns whether the acquisition of Evergreen constituted a breach of fiduciary duty by the Board of Erickson, and its majority shareholder, ZM Funds.
