Conexant Wins Interim Court Approval to Tap $15 Million Bankruptcy Loan

Kirkland advises Conexant Systems Inc. in its Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing.     

"Conexant is aiming for a 'very expedited' bankruptcy proceeding, 'because of viability concerns with a long Chapter 11 case,' said Kirkland & Ellis LLP's Joshua Sussberg, attorney for the company.

'I'm sure there will be some discussion about that,' Mr. Sussberg said.

Conexant's attorney said the $2 million offer for unsecured creditors was arrived at through a legal and business analysis of how much value could be freed from the claims of the Soros fund affiliate that is the company's secured lender."
