A leading broke retailer is poised to emerge from Chapter 11. Two activist hedge funds (“vulture investors”) will possess over 50% of reorganized Kmart’s common stock, based on past investments in Kmart’s debt claims, and an infusion of new equity funding.
The chapter 11 process has formed both advantages and prices for the business. The worth of the reorganized company, and its future profitability, are both highly dubious.
