Borders May Get Approval for Bankruptcy Financing

Once it makes some changes to its initial bankruptcy agreement, Borders Group Inc. could get the final approval it needs to get bankruptcy financing.

In the "omnibus hearing" held last week in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court's Southern District of New York several items were addressed regarding Borders' Chapter 11 bankruptcy case.   However the company is requesting an extension in order to give them more time to decide whether to sublease, renegotiate or exit leases at current locations across the country.  At this hearing the court granted Borders 90 additional days, on two of the standard 120 days, to make this decision.

This was good news for the company that needs this approval to get the $505 million line of bankruptcy financing through GE Capital. Yet this amount will be withheld until Judge Martin Glenn sees that changes have been made to the agreement, such as providing cash to unsecured creditors to examine secured creditors' claims.
