  • The Com­pa­ny is a fam­i­ly-owned oil and gas pro­duc­er oper­at­ing assets across the Texas Gulf Coast region and South­east New Mexico
  • Chi­ron was engaged after the bank post­ed a notice for fore­clo­sure on the Com­pa­ny’s assets


  • Chi­ron act­ed as agent to the Com­pa­ny for the pri­vate place­ment of a new $250 MM reserve-based loan (RBL), the pro­ceeds of which were used to refi­nance the lega­cy lenders
  • The RBL place­ment, com­bined with new equi­ty invest­ment, allowed the Com­pa­ny to suc­cess­ful­ly avoid fore­clo­sure and Chap­ter 11
  • As a result of the restruc­tur­ing, the Com­pa­ny gained suf­fi­cient liq­uid­i­ty to refo­cus its effort on increas­ing production

I was impressed with how quick­ly Chi­ron was able to suc­cess­ful­ly secure a $250 mil­lion reserve-based loan with Citibank which allowed us to replace our lega­cy cred­it facil­i­ty. The results were just what we need­ed.”- CFO, E&P Company

The Challenge

The bank posted a notice for foreclosure on the Company's assets.

The Chiron Solution

Chiron acted as agent to the Company for the private placement of a new $250 MM reserve-based loan (RBL), the proceeds of which were used to refinance the legacy lenders.

The Result

The Company gained sufficient liquidity to refocus its effort on increasing production.
