Grizzly will emerge from Chapter 11 with approximately $375 million of funded debt and $47 million of liquidity comprised of more than $7 million in cash and $40 million of unused revolver capacity.

Mr. R Scott Sloan, president and CEO, commented, "We are very pleased to have completed this reorganization and look forward to working with our stakeholders and board members in charting a course for the company with this firmer financial footing. I want to also add a special thanks to all of our employees whose dedication and hard work managing and administering our assets has been exceptional during this process."
