Molycorp Inc.

June 25, 2015
The firm represented noteholders in the chapter 11 case of this Colorado-based producer of rare earths used in electric cars and wind turbines. Molycorp’s $1.7 billion in debt includes $206 million in convertible notes. Unregulated mining, separation and export of rare earths in China drove down rare earth prices and margins throughout 2014. In March 2016, the bondholders were winning bidders, and the company emerged from bankruptcy after coming to terms with the bondholders.
