The entities that filed Chapter 11 petitions include Mallinckrodt plc, substantially all of its U.S. subsidiaries, including its specialty generics-focused subsidiaries (collectively, “Specialty Generics”) and specialty brands-related subsidiaries (collectively, “Specialty Brands”), and certain of its international subsidiaries.
The current consolidated cash balance of the Chapter 11 filing entities is more than $650 million. Together with cash generated from ongoing operations, this is expected to provide ample liquidity to support continued operations during the court-supervised process.
The Company has filed a number of customary motions seeking court authorization to continue to support its business operations during the court-supervised process, including the continued payment of employee wages and benefits without interruption. The Company intends to pay vendors and suppliers in full under normal terms for goods received and services rendered on or after the filing date. The Company expects to receive court approval for all of these routine requests. The Company’s foreign non-debtor affiliates will continue to operate their businesses in the ordinary course.
Separating the Specialty Generics and Specialty Brands businesses remains one of Mallinckrodt’s goals. The Company will continue to evaluate strategic options for the Specialty Generics business at an appropriate time and when market conditions are favorable.
