Not surprised considering the loan sharks in the banks own PHI anyway and the stock is worth only pennies

Was this part of that strategy they were telling us about? Big Al stepping back, debtors taking ownership, and selling us to the highest bidder? Or am I missing something again and everythings going to be fine? 

Think I might polish that resume just in case 🤔

He owned 72% of the company stock Pre filing. PHI was always a private company masquerading as a public one. Big Al ran the show with no checks and balances. At many points in the past the company was worth as much as 750 million. He also turned down many offers to to sell out Over the years. Shortly before the filing he borrowed 75 million and put 130 million of his own money into the company in an effort to hold on. His relationship with his creditors was contentious at best. At one point he was offered two seats on the board, a piece of the company and a presence in the new org going forward. He refused. He was given his 130 million back and shown the door. Net effect is he walked out with a net of zero. Stubborn is as stubborn does. All public info. Read, learn, post less BS.

You say he owned 72% and refused to sell.   So, how was he "shown the door" if he owned the majority?  And, if he put in $130-million of his own money, then it tells you he was more committed to the company than any outside investor could ever possibly be (just ask Frank Borman about Frank Lorenzo)

not in the know dont be surprised if the company ownership stays under the same "flag." The key here is " who" are the unsecured creditors? Plus PHI didn't get this far since 2000 because the head shed was lacking in business skills. Its been known for years the owner has been looking to leave since the 76 accident. As the rotor turns....

This looks like a big For Sale Sign by the creditors, they will sell this in a heart beat after the bankruptsy is complete to get their money back, may the new potential owners start lining up.

get it. A lot has to happen before there are new owners, if any. As I've inquired above who are the unsecured creditors? You seem to have a lot of hype but no pertinent facts. You wouldn't happen to be that non-voting share holder who cried to the SEC to sell the AMG side side so you could get your "three-fiddy" back? You'll look more the a** by calling out the for sale signs.

unsecureds bought it. Former CEO is out for good. Again read the filings, he was shown the door hard. Walked away with nothing, zero, zip, nada, not a single penny for a single share in the company, because there are no old shares in the company, all flushed with the stroke of a pen. Up to the new owners how many or if any shares will be issued at all. And who will get them.

Big A didn't leave empty handed and the original management team was left intact. And the compant has not been dissolved in these proceedings. So what's your point again? Don't be surprised if the new PHI doesn't gobble up a few other operators in there near future.

got bought by Air/ Offshore Logistics back in the 80s? Air Dog fresh out of Ch11 turned around and bought the big pinwheel and changed their name. Wouldn't it be grand to have PHI do the same and change the pinwheel to yellow and black! Papa Suggs would flip in his grave as Alan Bristow would scream bloody murder. Ad for those who weren't around, Suggs and Bristow had a "friendly" rivelary over civil helicopter world domination a few decades ago. As I said becareful what you wish for. Perhaps you need a shot of coolaid yourself!!!☺

Olog filed bankruptcy in the mid '80s. Olog and a bank bought Bristow in the mid '90s. The two companies were not merged until roughly ten years later under the Bristow name due to a pesky problem with the SEC. Official reason was that Bristow had a better name recognition.
