    This info was in the 'news' section on my E*trade account this morning. (source is Dow Jones.) Looks like trading probably will resume, perhaps fairly soon?

    By Michael Calia

    LDK Solar (LDK) on Friday said it has reached agreements on restructuring and interim financing with offshore creditors.

    The solar-wafer manufacturer, which has been struggling to deal with its large debt load, said it had signatures from a majority of the holders of its debt and shares to back restructuring.

    LDK also said it had a commitment letter from Heng Rui Xin Energy Co. to provide interim financing of up to $14 million.

    Also Friday, the New York Stock Exchange said it would begin the procedure to resume trading in LDK's American depositary shares and that it would continue to review their listing status following the restructuring agreement announcement. The exchange had halted trading in the ADS in late February.

    The company in February asked the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands to appoint joint provisional liquidators to help it resolve its debt issues. The liquidators were appointed days later.

    LDK, based in China, was once the world's biggest manufacturer by capacity of solar wafers, which are used to produce solar panels.

    Falling prices and tough competition hurt the company and its competitors, which also had to deal with a worldwide oversupply of solar panels and manufacturing capacity.

    LDK missed a $23.8 million bond payment in April 2013, shortly after the company reported a $1 billion loss for 2012.

    Part 2 of release
    Copies of the winding-up petition, the summons for the appointment of provisional liquidators, the supporting affidavits, counsel's written submission and the order made on February 27, 2014 may be obtained (in hard copy or electronic form) from the Company's Cayman attorneys as well.

    The discussions between LDK Solar and holders of Renminbi-denominated US$-settled 10% Senior Notes due February 28, 2014 (the "Senior Notes") as well as holders of the convertible preferred shares issued by a Company affiliate and involving claims against the Company (the "Preferred Obligations") are on-going. Subject to the Cayman court sanction, it is anticipated that the Company will enter into two RSAs with a majority of the holders of each of the Senior Notes and the Preferred Obligations.

    The Company has no intention of initiating any debt restructuring proceedings in respect of the LDK Solar-affiliated entities operating in the People's Republic of China. The Company's bank group for its mainland China operations has expressed unanimous support for the Company's continued discussions with its offshore creditors with a view to resolving its offshore liquidity issues.
