On June 29, 2020, Cirque du Soleil Canada Inc. and 42 of its affiliates (collectively, the "Debtors”) commenced a proceeding (the “Canadian Proceeding”) in the Superior Court of Quebec (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 Ernst & Young Inc. to serve as the Monitor in the Canadian Proceeding and authorized Cirque du Soleil Canada Inc. to commence chapter 15 proceedings in the United States.
On July 1, 2020, Cirque du Soleil Canada 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 District of Delaware (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 Christopher S. Sontchi and are being jointly administered for procedural purposes under case number 20-11719. This is the official website for the chapter 15 cases maintained by the Debtors’ U.S. noticing agent.
