ChelPipe Lenders Want More Surety for Debts, Vedomosti Reports

Chelyabinsk Pipe Works (CHEP)’s lenders want more guarantees from the plant’s owners in restructuring its debts worth of 113 billion rubles ($3.5 billion), Vedomosti said, citing four unidentified people familiar with the matter.

Creditors want to get personal guarantees from owners of the plant, a non-state producer of pipes for the oil and gas industry known as ChelPipe, besides the state guarantees they already have, the newspaper said. The lenders, which include 20 banks, require owners Andrey Komarov and Alexander Fedorov to put their shares up as security as well, Vedomosti said.
