$1.2 billion settlement in kind between The Investment Dar and its creditors

Tribonian Law Advisors (TLA) acted as lead counsel to The Investment Dar K.S.C. (TID) in a transaction that involved a $1.2 billion settlement in kind with just under a third of its creditors by value. Participating creditors settled existing FSL claims at a significant discount in exchange for cash, debt and equity participation in a newly formed Jersey entity, to which various assets of TID were transferred. The debt in the Jersey entity was structured on a loan-to-value basis and provided enhanced security and information rights. Approximately 29 per cent of TID’s creditors elected to participate in the transaction. Non-participating lenders benefited from the transaction by seeing a 2.1x multiple reduction in the liabilities settled versus the realisable asset value which was contributed to the Jersey entity.
