PG&E Transaction is Largest New-Money DIP Financing in History

Stroock’s national Financial Restructuring Group has been awarded ‘Deal of the Year’ by IFLR1000 for the Pacific Gas and Electric Company $5.5 billion debtor-in-possession financing transaction. Stroock represented JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. as administrative agent and as lead arranger for the largest new-money DIP financing in history, provided to PG&E in connection with its chapter 11 cases. The DIP facilities provided PG&E with liquidity to fund its ongoing operations and prosecute and consummate its historic restructuring. A multidisciplinary team at Stroock led the structuring, negotiation and documentation of the JPMorgan-led DIP facilities and assisted with PG&E’s exit from chapter 11 on July 1, 2020.

Stroock’s Financial Restructuring Group has extensive experience representing sophisticated financial institutions in their role as creditors, equity holders and new money investors/lenders in high-profile and complex bankruptcy matters. The group routinely plays a central part in the nation’s largest restructurings.
