Delphi Announces Disclosure Statement and Plan Investment Agreement Amendment Hearings Continued to Nov. 29
TROY, Mich. -- Delphi Corp. (OTC:DPHIQ) announced that the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York has agreed to continue until Nov. 29 a hearing previously scheduled for Nov. 8 to consider potential amendments to its Joint Plan of Reorganization and related Disclosure Statement as well as an amendment to the Company’s Investment Agreement. Consistent with the Company’s expectations previously disclosed, the conditions to the effectiveness of the Investment Agreement amendment announced on Oct. 30 were not satisfied prior to the Nov. 8 scheduled hearing. As a result, Delphi’s Plan Investors are no longer obligated to execute the Oct. 30 amendment, although the underlying Investment Agreement remains effective in accordance with its terms as approved by the Bankruptcy Court in August, 2007. The adjournment, which was approved by the Bankruptcy Court on Nov. 7, will permit the Company to continue discussions with its principal stakeholders, including Delphi’s Statutory Committees, Plan Investors and General Motors Corp. In order to proceed with the Nov. 29 hearings, the Bankruptcy Court’s supplemental scheduling order requires Delphi to use commercially reasonable efforts to file additional potential amendments to the Company’s Disclosure Statement, Plan of Reorganization, Investment Agreement with the Plan Investors and Global Settlement Agreement with GM by Nov. 16. Delphi continues to expect that it will emerge from chapter 11 during the first quarter of 2008.
