DALLAS, April 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Azure Midstream Partners, LP (the "Partnership") (OTC Pink: AZURQ) today announced that on April 25, 2017, the Partnership, along with its general partner and its direct and indirect subsidiaries (collectively, the "Debtors"), filed a First Amended Joint Plan of Liquidation (as amended, the "Plan") and related First Amended Disclosure Statement (as amended, the "Disclosure Statement") with the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas, Houston Division (the "Court"). A hearing before the Court regarding the approval of the Disclosure Statement is scheduled for Monday, May 1, 2017 (the "Hearing").
Also, tomorrow the Debtors intend to file a response and objection (the "Response") to an emergency motion to appoint an equity committee (the "Equity Holder Motion") filed by one of the Partnership's equity holders and received by the Court on April 25, 2017. The Response will include additional information supporting the Partnership's previously disclosed expectations (reflected in the Plan and Disclosure Statement) that it is unlikely that any holders of common units will receive any distributions upon the Court's confirmation of the Plan. The Equity Holder Motion and Response will also be addressed by the Court at the Hearing.
The Plan and Disclosure Statement, the Equity Holder Motion and the Response will be available to the public through the website administered by the Partnership's claims agent at www.kccllc.net/azuremlp, which is accessible through the Partnership's website at http://www.azuremidstream.com/. We urge you to monitor our press releases and these websites for important information.
