WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ Hawker Beechcraft says key creditors are overwhelmingly backing its proposed reorganization plan in a vote that moves the company closer to emerging from bankruptcy protection.
The company said Friday that it will seek court approval to exit bankruptcy at a hearing Thursday and expects to emerge from Chapter 11 in February.
It also said it has secured an underwriting commitment for $600 million in exit financing consisting of a term loan and revolving line of credit from JPMorgan Chase Bank and Credit Suisse AG.
Hawker Beechcraft Inc. CEO Robert ``Steve'' Miller said in a news release that the show of support from creditors will dramatically reduce the company's debt load, while the financing commitment marks an important milestone as the company emerges from restructuring.
