Pioneer Energy Services Corp. has emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, successfully completing its debt restructuring process.

Pioneer reduced total debt by approximately $267 million, from $475 million to $208 million, and obtained a new $75 million asset backed revolving credit facility.

The Company's $208 million of new debt consists of $78 million of floating rate senior secured notes due May 2025, with 50% of the interest in the first year paid in-kind rather than in cash, and $130 million of 5% convertible notes due November 2025, with all interest paid in-kind rather than in cash.  Based on current interest rates total cash interest payable on the notes is anticipated to be approximately $4.3 million in the first year and $8.6 million thereafter.
