exide technologies (XIDEQ) Key Developments

Exide Technologies Names Keith Wandell as Chairman

Keith Wandell, the retiring president and chief executive officer of Harley-Davidson Inc., is making a return to the battery business after being named chairman of Exide Technologies as part of that company's bankruptcy reorganization. Before taking the helm at Harley-Davidson six years ago, Wandell served as president and CEO of Johnson Controls Inc.

Exide Closes California Facility, Cutting 130 Jobs

Exide Technologies announced that it will shut down its lead-acid battery recycling facility in Vernon, Calif., as part of a settlement to resolve the federal government's criminal investigation into the company. The company said the closure will put 130 people out of work. Exide also worked out a framework with the California Department of Toxic Substances Control for the orderly closure and cleanup of the facility. The company said it agreed to the framework after hearing from the department it would likely deny its Part B hazardous waste facility permit application.

Exide Technologies Seeks Approval from Lenders to Extend DIP Financing Maturity Date

Exide Technologies announced that the Company is seeking approval from its lenders for an extension of its debtor-in-possession (DIP) credit facility's maturity date to March 31, 2015. This extension would provide Exide additional time to complete negotiations with its noteholders around a stand-alone Plan of Reorganization. Exide already has obtained consent to the maturity extension from JPMorgan, the DIP credit facility's agent bank, along with support from holders of a substantial percentage of the DIP facility's term loans. Exide expects to receive approval of the amendment from the balance of its lenders by next week. No bankruptcy court approval is required for the maturity date extension; approval of other elements of the amendment will be considered by the bankruptcy court at an October 31 hearing.
