Business Profiles


Remora filed for bankruptcy protection on August 12, 2020 in the Southern District of Texas and emerged just three short months later as part of the pre-arranged bankruptcy. At the petition date, Remora had $36.1 million in indebtedness under its pre-petition first lien loan agreement and $25.0 million under the second lien loan agreement.

Gordian was retained by Remora in June 2020 to serve as exclusive Investment Banker and Valuation Expert to the Debtor during the pendency of the Chapter 11 process.
