On March 9, 2021, Just Energy Group Inc. and 47 of its affiliates (collectively, the "Debtors”) commenced a proceeding (the “Canadian Proceeding”) in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice (Commercial Division) (the “Canadian Court”) under the Companies’ Creditors Arrangement Act (the “CCAA”) to restructure the Debtors’ finances while continuing normal operations under the protections offered by the CCAA. The Canadian Court appointed FTI Consulting, Inc. ("FTI") to serve as the Monitor in the Canadian Proceeding and authorized Just Energy Group Inc. to commence chapter 15 proceedings in the United States.
On March 9, 2021, Just Energy Group Inc., as authorized foreign representative, filed a voluntary petition for each of the Debtors under chapter 15 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas (the “Bankruptcy Court”). The chapter 15 cases are ancillary proceedings to the Canadian Proceeding, through which the Debtors have asked the Bankruptcy Court to recognize the Canadian Proceeding as the Debtors’ foreign main proceedings and enforce in the United States the relief granted by the Canadian Court in the Canadian Proceeding.
The cases are pending before the Honorable Marvin Isgur and are being jointly administered for procedural purposes under case number 21-30823. This is the official website for the chapter 15 cases maintained by the Debtors’ U.S. noticing agent.
