U.S. district court approves W.R. Grace’s reorganization planTue Jan 31, 2012 10:52am EST
Jan 31 (Reuters) – W. R. Grace & Co said its reorganization plan has been approved by the U.S. district court of Delaware, clearing a major hurdle for the chemical and building products maker to emerge from its decade-long bankruptcy protection.
Grace filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in April 2001, weighed down by asbestos-related claims. A bankruptcy court confirmed its reorganization plan exactly a year ago.
The reorganization plan calls for setting up two asbestos trusts to compensate personal injury claimants and property owners, Grace said in a statement on Tuesday.
