Soreide Law Group is Investigating Claims of Investors Who Were Recommended Windstream Holdings, Inc. Bonds or Stock By Their Investment Advisors

Windstream Bond victims call 888-760-6552 to start the recovery process now. 

Windstream Holdings, Inc. has filed for bankruptcy because a court ruled it violated its bond covenants.  Windstream Bonds that were 6.375% senior notes maturing in 2023 were put into default.  The CEO of Windstream, Tony Thomas, said it was a “necessary step” to file voluntarily to address the impact on consumers and businesses.  It will renegotiate its debt with creditors and does not anticipate any material impact to its operations.

The reorganization plan put forth in court April 1st says it will attempt to reduce the company’s debt and try to emerge from restructuring quickly.  The initial chapter 11 reorganization filing was with the southern District of New York on Feb 25, 2019 and the business operated as normal since.

This leaves a significant impact on bond and equity holders.  Bond and equity holders were sold the Windstream securities by stock brokers touting high yield and safety.  However, this proved not to be the case and some brokers may have overconcentrated investors in these and other risky investments.  Some of the related bond CUSIP numbers for Windstream Holdings, Inc. Bonds are:
