LATAM Group began this Tuesday the last phase of the Chapter 11 process that it is carrying out in the United States Court. Through an essential fact sent to the Commission for the Financial Market (CMF), the group informed that it became aware of the registration of the 605,801,285,307 shares in the Securities Registry of the CMF, corresponding to the capital increase and the three classes of convertible bonds , financial instruments that were approved at the Extraordinary Shareholders’ Meeting last July.
“With the registration by the CMF of the instruments approved in the restructuring plan, we are taking the last step in our Chapter XI process, with a view to emerging by November at the latest, well positioned for the future. We value the trust and continued support of our shareholders and other stakeholders and look forward to a successful conclusion of the preemptive subscription period,” said LATAM CEO Roberto Alvo.
