Checkout Holding Corp. (dba Catalina Marketing), along with ten affiliates and subsidiaries, has filed a petition for relief under chapter 11 in the Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (Lead Case No. 18-12794).  According to the First Day Declaration, Catalina, headquartered in St. Petersburg, FL, is a personalized digital media and marketing company that owns and operates a proprietary dual function in-store data-gathering network and promotion publishing channel.  Catalina announced earlier this morning that it had reached an agreement with over 90% of the company’s first lien lenders and over 75% of the company’s second lien lenders on the terms of a restructuring support agreement.  The Debtors’ prepackaged plan of reorganization would deleverage Catalina’s balance sheet by over $1.9 billion in debt.  The Disclosure Statement can be found here.  The Debtors are requesting the Court hold a combined hearing on Plan confirmation and approval of the Disclosure Statement on January 30, 2019.  No claims and noticing agent has been proposed.  The cases have been assigned to the Honorable Kevin Gross.
