07:16 EDTVCVisteon signs agreement to divest majority of automotive interiors business
Visteon announced an agreement to divest the majority of its global automotive interiors business to an affiliate of Cerberus Capital Management, L.P. The transaction is expected to be completed by Dec. 31. Visteon also announced it has completed a previously announced agreement to sell its 50 percent ownership stake in a Korean automotive interiors joint venture, Duckyang Industry, as part of the divestiture of its interiors business. Under terms of the agreement with the Cerberus affiliate, Visteon will divest the interiors operations for nominal consideration and will contribute up to $95M to the business. The Cerberus affiliate will assume approximately $20M of pension and other liabilities of the business, while Visteon will retain ownership in certain real estate and other assets in South America and Europe worth, in aggregate, about $35M. Visteon also will provide support services to the Cerberus affiliate. Terms of this agreement are generally consistent with previously provided guidance on Visteon's exit of the interiors business. Also, Visteon has agreed to provide a seller-backed revolver to bridge any shortfall of a targeted $90M of external credit facilities if the complete amount is not available by closing, to be repaid by the buyer, if drawn, once additional committed facilities are in place after the transaction closes. The $90M of financing is not anticipated to be utilized at closing and simply adds to the liquidity of the business. The amount of the potential Visteon-backed revolver, if any, is difficult to assess, but is not expected to exceed $20M once all external credit facilities are put in place.

13:41 EDTVCVisteon sued by Michigan township to 'failing to uphold commitment"
Van Buren Charter Township, Michigan has filed a complaint in the United States Bankruptcy Court For The District of Delaware against Visteon Corporation, which is headquartered in the Township. In its complaint, the Township asks the Court to find that Visteon Corporation breached its contract with the Township. According to the Township, in that contract, the global auto parts supplier committed that there would be no payment shortfall under the bonds issued by the Township’s Local Development Finance Authority to develop Visteon’s world headquarters complex. The LDFA’s issuance of tax-exempt bonds was an integral component of Visteon’s construction of its World Headquarters and a sign of the Township’s commitment to Visteon, as outlined in the complaint. However, according to the Township, because Visteon has failed to uphold its commitment, reached as part of the company’s successful emergence from bankruptcy, the Township faces a shortfall in the next two to three years, even with anticipated bond refinancing.
