Lightstream Resources Investment Losses
Have you suffered losses investing in Lightstream Resources? If so, The White Law Group may be able to help.
According to their website, Lightstream Resources, LTD is an oil and gas exploration and production company focused on light oil in the Bakken and Cardium resource plays.
Lightstream Resources Ltd. is seeking bankruptcy protection from its creditors after the oil and gas producer failed to reach a deal to restructure close to $1.2-billion worth of debt.
Lightstream shares, which fell from a high of $9.03 each before oil prices started their slide to 10 cents a piece, were halted Tuesday ahead of a de-listing review after the company announced late Monday it would seek bankruptcy protection.
BDC Credit Reporter
According to the BDC Credit Reporter, “We understand that GSO Blackstone (which manages the FS Group funds) and funds affiliated with Apollo Global have been doubling down in Lightstream Resources (as in so many other energy deals) to gain control of the company, rather than forcing an asset sale and recording a Realized Loss from the net proceeds. That’s part of a much bigger strategy by asset management organizations to remain invested in oil and gas through the cycle, which may yet prove to be the wisest move to maximize investment returns.”
