This turning point marks the implementation of the company's prepackaged plan of reorganization, which was confirmed by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware on September 30.

      "Following the successful completion of our restructuring, we look forward to working with our new ownership group to build the next chapter of TNT's growth – one grounded by a stronger financial position and recapitalized balance sheet," said Michael Appling Jr., CEO of TNT. "We are pleased to report that this process was seamlessly executed faster than anticipated and has provided us with a newly revitalized foundation to continue as North America's leader in providing safe, reliable lifting services to our customers."

       TNT emerges from its restructuring as a private company with a new ownership group, recapitalized with a new $225 million term loan.
