EXCO Resources, Inc. Plan of Reorganization Confirmed by Court

DALLAS, June 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- EXCO Resources, Inc. ("EXCO" or the "Company") today announced that the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas has confirmed the Company's Amended Plan of Reorganization (the "Plan") and issued a written ruling and confirmation order to that effect. The Company expects to complete its financial restructuring process and successfully emerge from Chapter 11 in the coming weeks.

Upon emergence, EXCO will reduce its leverage by more than $1.1 billion and will continue to engage in the exploration, acquisition, development and production of onshore U.S. oil and natural gas properties with a focus on shale resource plays in key basins in Texas, Louisiana and the Appalachia region.

"Today's confirmation marks the beginning of the next chapter in EXCO's evolution, paving the way for our successful emergence from the financial restructuring process with a significantly stronger balance sheet," said Hal Hickey, EXCO's Chief Executive Officer and President. "During the court-supervised process, our team has remained focused on our business and operational initiatives, exceeding our 2018 financial and operational objectives and tracking to our 2019 plan. Importantly, we have also achieved a number of significant safety milestones, including 38 consecutive months with zero recordable OSHA incidents. It is a testament to the hard work of EXCO employees that we have continued to operate efficiently and safely throughout this process, and I remain proud of their tremendous efforts. On behalf of everyone at EXCO, I also want to express our gratitude to our customers, business partners and lenders for their continued support."
