The unsecured creditors’ committee of GNC Holdings, Inc., a leading global specialty retailer of health and wellness products for 85 years, which at one point operated approximately 5,200 retail locations in approximately 50 countries, successfully negotiated a Plan of Reorganization in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in the District of Delaware, including the sale of the GNC business as a going concern. Represented by Lowenstein Sandler, the consensual resolution with the Debtors, secured lenders, unsecured noteholders and the purchaser, resulted in significantly increased recovery for unsecured creditors, prompting the judge to refer to the hearing as a “love fest.” The Effective Date of the Plan is October 30, 2020. Led by partners Jeffrey Cohen and Michael S. Etkin, the Lowenstein team will continue to represent the Plan Administrator.
