Noble Corp. (NE) Investment Losses

Have you suffered investment losses in Noble Corp.? If so,  the securities attorneys at The White Law Group may be able to help you recover your losses by filing a complaint against the brokerage firm that sold you the investment.

After a deep decline in oil prices during the COVID-19 global pandemic, offshore drilling contractor, Noble Corp., filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition, including a plan to erase its  $3.4 billion bond debt through a swap for new equity, according to Bloomberg on Friday. 

The company reportedly said in a statement that the Chapter 11 filing in Texas would eliminate all of the company’s bond borrowings by swapping debt for equity. Noteholders agreed to invest $200 million of new capital through second-lien notes, and Noble has reportedly  lined up a $675 million secured revolving credit facility backed by current lenders including JPMorgan Chase & Co.

Noble reported both assets and liabilities of $1 billion to $10 billion, according to the bankruptcy petition. It expects to emerge from Chapter 11 before the end of the year, and will continue operating while in bankruptcy, according to the statement.

According to reports, Noble had spent years in litigation after it formed a new company, Paragon Offshore, in 2014, with more than 40 of its rigs and later filed for bankruptcy. The litigation reportedly took its toll on the company’s share price. 

According to MarketWatch, Noble Corp.’s share price is down -83.20% YTD.
