L&L, CAM-SAM act on $2.9bn insolvency of Aircel, bought by UV Assets

Aircel’s lenders are said to have approved a proposal of takeover from UV Asset Reconstruction Company (UVARCL), ending a year-long debt resolution process that was the first of its kind in the telecom sector. While the bankrupt operator may have narrowly escaped liquidation, its financial creditors may recover 15-20% of loans they extended to Aircel, among the lowest in major insolvency cases so far.
