Quiksilver Quick to Dismiss Rumors of a Merger with Billabong International

Quiksilver Inc. (OTCPK:ZQKS.Q) President Greg Healy was quick to dismiss rumors of a merger with Billabong International Limited (ASX:BBG) when Quiksilver's United States operations filed for bankruptcy protection in September, 2015. But speculation is rapidly gaining momentum as Quiksilver fights for survival in United States. A Billabong spokesman said Billabong was aware of the latest rumors but would not be distracted from the turnaround strategy, which is finally gaining traction. Quiksilver is now in court defending the Oaktree Capital Management, L.P. proposal, under which it would borrow as much as $175 million from Oaktree and Bank of America Corp. Oaktree would eventually convert its debt into equity and assume control of Quiksilver.
