AMSTERDAM–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Lehman Brothers Treasury Co. B.V. in liquidation (“LBT”) today,
through its U.S. counsel Kramer Levin Naftalis & Frankel LLP, confirmed
that the previously announced partial wind-down has concluded
successfully. A final distribution to creditors that did not receive
substitute notes was made in May 2019. Holders of substitute notes
received a first distribution on their substitute notes in May 2019.
LBT also announced that it is beginning to explore options to facilitate
the final wind-down of LBT in the near future, including an in-kind
distribution to holders of substitute notes of their pro-rata
share of the remaining intercompany claim of approximately US$ 19.6
billion held by LBT against Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. In this
context, LBT has asked its paying agent to begin preparations for the
collation of information concerning the holders of substitute notes
through a voluntary disclosure request via the clearing systems.
The foregoing is subject to further consents and authorizations that LBT
may require, and LBT retains sole discretion to halt, abandon or
otherwise discontinue its exploration of final wind-down options. There
can be no assurances that a final wind-down will be effected, or if
effected, the timing thereof.
LBT does not undertake to update publicly its disclosure to reflect
developments in this matter.
