New Chapter 11 Filing - Toisa Ltd.

Toisa Ltd.

  • 1/30/31 Recap: Bermuda-based operator of 19 offshore vessels servicing the oil and gas industry filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy to restructure its balance sheet amidst acceleration and demand notices from lenders (and, in one case, a ship seizure). With utilization rates down from 85% in 2014 to a scary 50% today and continued pressure projected throughout 2017, the company hopes the breathing spell triggered by the filing will provide the time needed to formulate a plan of reorganization.
