CORRECT: Rabobank Balks At Peak's Attempt To Speed Through Chapter 11

("Rabobank Balks At Peak's Attempt To Speed Through Chapter 11," published at 1:13 p.m. EST, misspelled Rabobank in the third paragraph. A corrected version follows.) By Stephanie Gleason Of Dow Jones Daily Bankruptcy Review Rabobank International, the only lender to vote against Peak Broadcasting LLC's prepackaged Chapter 11 plan, is attempting put the brakes on the company's accelerated bankruptcy case and is seeking to derail Peak Broadcasting's bid to skip certain financial disclosures. In documents filed Wednesday with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Wilmington, Del., Rabobank objected to Peak Broadcasting's request that the deadline for filing a statement of financial affairs be extended to March 10 and that the disclosure be waived altogether if the case concludes before that date. "The debtors cannot attempt to speed up the bankruptcy process while claiming not to have enough resources to fulfill their basic obligation to file the schedules and statements," Rabobank said. "The creditors and other parties in interest deserve an opportunity to analyze the debtors' schedules and statements." The Bankruptcy Code sets a two-week deadline for filing a statement of financial affairs, which contains specific information about revenues and other assets, but that can be automatically extended to 30 days in Delaware. Peak Broadcasting is requesting two months while also asking for its Chapter 11 plan to be confirmed within 50 days. In its Chapter 11 petition, Peak Broadcasting claimed between $50 million and $100 million in both assets and liabilities but didn't provide more specific financial information. More generally, Rabobank is objecting to Peak Broadcasting's Chapter 11 plan and the speed with which the company is attempting to move through the bankruptcy process. "Pre-packaged plans offer a means of expediting the bankruptcy process by doing most of the work in advance of the filing. That efficiency, however, must not be obtained at the price of diminishing the integrity of the process," Rabobank said in court documents. Peak Broadcasting had said that lenders could pull their support of the plan if it isn't confirmed in 50 days, but Rabobank called that deadline "illusory and self-imposed." The plan proposes "gifts" to junior creditors, lacks justification for retaining the same management employees in the reorganized company and treats Rabobank differently than other claimants, Rabobank said. Peak Broadcasting began negotiating with lenders in October after falling advertising revenues threatened its ability to continue making payments on debt. All lenders except Rabobank agreed in December to the plan, which pays senior lenders owed $58.2 million with equity in the new company and restructured loans. The Fresno, Calif., company was formed in 2006 when it purchased seven Fresno radio stations from CBS Corp. (CBS). In April 2007, the company expanded into Idaho with the acquisition of six radio stations and sold two stations in Fresno. The stations, a combination of AM and FM, broadcast programming from news and talk to country and oldies.
