Remington Bankruptcy in 2018
Remington Outdoor Company has been manufacturing firearm products for close to 200 years now. Remington is best known for manufacturing handguns, shotguns, rifles, and ammunition for a variety of customers, including hunters, military, and police. Cerberus Capital Management is the company which currently controls Remington. It was recently announced that Remington filed for bankruptcy.
The company filed in a Delaware Court less than a week ago. The filing includes a revised plan for getting rid of the $620 million that Remington owes. This would help them payback most of the money they owe to creditors, but they will have to give a majority of the ownership interests in their company to certain lenders. Two of the big lenders here include JPMorgan Asset Management and Franklin Resources Inc.
