Ascent Resources Marcellus Holdings, LLC and its affiliated debtors were formed to acquire, explore for, develop, produce, and operate natural gas and oil properties in the Marcellus Shale basin, one of the largest shale plays in the United States encompassing over 30 million acres across four states in the eastern U.S.  The debtors commenced their chapter 11 cases to obtain approval of a prepackaged plan of reorganization meant to not only reduce debt, but also maintain the underlying value of the debtors’ businesses and position the debtors for future growth.  The prepackaged plan of reorganization was approved 45 days after the commencement of the chapter 11 cases and significantly de-levered the debtors through a debt for equity conversion while providing general unsecured creditors with a 100% recovery.  Young Conaway was retained to represent the Debtors, as co-counsel to Sullivan & Cromwell.
