Investor Alert: Paladin Energy Bonds

(Last Updated On: August 30, 2016)

Have you suffered losses investing in Paladin Energy Bonds? If so, the attorneys at The White Law Group may be able to help you recover your losses with a FINRA arbitration claim against the brokerage firm that recommended the bonds to you.

On April 21, 2016, Paladin Energy Corporation  filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas, Dallas Division.

According to the court papers Paladin is an oil and gas producer with interests in numerous wells in Texas and New Mexico. Paladin’s liabilities include over $22 million owed under a 2008 Credit Facility with MUFG Union Bank N.A. and trade debt.

High-yield bonds—also called non-investment-grade bonds, speculative-grade bonds, or junk bonds—are bonds that are rated below investment grade, typically ‘BB’ or lower by Standard & Poor’s and ‘Ba’ or lower by Moody’s. They pay high yields to bondholders because the borrowers credit ratings are less than pristine, making it difficult for them to acquire capital at an inexpensive cost. Junk bonds carry an above average risk that the issuer will default on the bond. The increased risk makes them arguably unsuitable for many investors.
