On January 27, 2019, BlueMountain Capital Management, LLC sent the following statement to certain media contacts:
A Chapter 11 filing by PG&E would be reckless and irresponsible because the company is solvent and needs not rush to take such an extreme, and extremely expensive, measure. Bankruptcy will cost the company hundreds of millions of dollars that could have been used for other urgent investments, such as improving its safety record.
PG&E’s 2001 bankruptcy was widely regarded as a disaster for all stakeholders other than the Company’s senior management and outside advisors with customers stuck with an estimated $6-8 billion in higher costs (about $1,300 to $1,700 per customer) while legal and professional advisors were paid over $400 million and 17 senior executives received $84 million in bonuses.
We believe a second bankruptcy filing will be far more expensive and bad news for all stakeholders from wildfire victims, customers and vendors to employees, creditors and the people of California.
Bankruptcy does not eliminate shareholders’ corporate governance rights, including their ability to nominate and elect directors and vote at annual meetings. Whether PG&E files for Chapter 11 in the coming days, or not, we plan to announce a proposed “New Slate” of impartial and highly-qualified directors no later than February 21 and urge all stakeholders to support change at PG&E.
