Quicksilver Resources Inc (OTCMKTS:KWKA) has collapsed after the Company said that they have decided not to make the interest payments due. Since hitting the bb’s KWKA has been highly volatile off its $0.02 lows.
On February 17 KWKA said it has decided not to make the approximately $13.6 million interest payment due February 17, 2015 on its 9.125% senior notes due 2019 (the “2019 Notes”). Under the terms of the indenture governing the 2019 Notes, the company has a 30-day grace period before the failure to make the interest payment results in an event of default.
The company believes it is in the best interests of its stakeholders to continue to focus on actively addressing the company’s debt and capital structure and intends to continue discussions with its creditors during the 30-day grace period. If the company does not make the interest payment before the end of the grace period, the trustee or the holders of at least 25% in the aggregate principal amount of the outstanding 2019 Notes may declare the principal and accrued interest for all 2019 Notes due and payable immediately. The acceleration of the principal under the 2019 Notes would also result in defaults under the terms of other indebtedness of the company.

KWKA CEO Glenn Darden said “Quicksilver has made significant progress on our stated goals since our last earnings call. Oil discoveries in West Texas, improved well results and cost structure in the Barnett and affirmation of our borrowing base and the covenant changes with our banks are all positive developments, These achievements have not only strengthened the company’s asset base, but should also be very helpful in our marketing process and other negotiations.”
