Sale Rumors Swirls Around Hawker Beechcraft

Lawyer Tells Court It Is Under Considerations

A lawyer representing Hawker Beechcraft in bankruptcy proceedings told a court late last week that the company is open to the idea of its being sold, and the Dow Jones Daily Bankruptcy Review indicates that interested parties have until June 7th to submit documentation of their bids for HBC.

The Wichita Eagle reports that there were several developments in the proceedings last week. Judge Stuart Bernstein ruled that HBC could continue to borrow against a $400 million loan made by 4 senior lenders. He also approved changes in documents relating to that loan extending a window for an investigation of the company's leveraged buyout in 2007. HBC's unsecured creditors and the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp now have until August 10th to complete that investigation.

The judge also approved motions allowing HBC to continue to pay its employees as well as financial consultants on retainer through the firm Perella Weinberg Partners and other bankruptcy professionals.

HBC Executive Vice President Shawn Vick told the paper that the "divestiture" option was just one of many possible outcomes, and that the company had undertaken a "modeling exercise" to explore those options, and the talk of a possible sale should not be taken out of context.
