As previously reported, on January 6, 2010, FirstFed Financial Corp. (the Company), pursuant to the provisions of the United States Bankruptcy Code (the Bankruptcy Code) filed a voluntary petition in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California, San Fernando Valley Division, seeking relief under the provisions of Chapter 11 of Title 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. Venue for the bankruptcy case was subsequently changed and it is now pending in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California, Los Angeles Division (the Bankruptcy Court), as Case No. 2:10-bk-12927-ER. As also previously reported, on November 13, 2012, the Bankruptcy Court entered an order confirming the proposed plan of reorganization filed with the Bankruptcy Court by the Company and Holdco Advisors L.P. (the Plan).
On January 2, 2013 (the Effective Date), the Plan became effective and the Company consummated its reorganization under the Bankruptcy Code. Pursuant to the Plan, all equity interests in the Company (including the Companys common stock) that were outstanding prior to the Effective Date were automatically cancelled as of the Effective Date and the obligations of the Company with respect to such equity interests were discharged as of the Effective Date.
