Investor Alert: Warren Resources

(Last Updated On: August 26, 2016)

Have you suffered losses investing in Warren Resources Bonds?  If so, the securities attorneys of The White Law Group may be able to help you.

Warren Resources, an oil and gas producer that operates in California, Pennsylvania and southwestern Wyoming, filed for bankruptcy protection June 2nd, and has worked out a deal to transfer ownership of the company to two debt-holders: 82.5% of the company will now be owned by GSO Capital (owed $248 million), and the rest will go to Claren Road Asset Management (owed $57 million).

Warren, with about $230 million in assets and $545 million in debts, joins more than 80 North American oil and gas companies that have filed for bankruptcy protection since last year, according to law firm Haynes & Boones.

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.
