Scott,

From the news releases below, I think we may end up getting close to 105, but I’m not sure, maybe I’m counting the 2015/16 payments twice. I interpret these reports as $3.2B cash now plus $0.4B stock plus $0.41B in 2015/16 payments, equaling a total of $4.1B among $3.824B of claims. This equates close to $1.05 to the dollar.

Anyway, as you said, it was a good outcome for a BK bond. Taught me to hang on to the end. My costs were in the mid 70’s and high 50’s after interest payments. I sold 2 bonds at Etrade in the mid 70’s (mistake, live and learn). I held 5 bonds for a total return of about 60% over 4 years.

I’ve come to the conclusion that defaulted bonds are not necessarily a problem… many times they create an opportunity!

Here are some news release notes I kept today:

According to the notice, the reorganization trust that will distribute assets to the company’s creditors received roughly $3.2 billion in cash and about $400 million in NRG stock (based on about 12.67 million shares and NRG’s stock price in late morning trading of $31.90/share) as a result of the closings of the sale and settlement.

According to the company’s disclosure statement, total unsecured claims in the case will be roughly $3.824 billion.
