Casas Bahia, one of the largest retail chains in Brazil, announced on Sunday (28) a pre-agreed agreement with its main creditors for an extrajudicial recovery of its debts, which total an impressive R$4.1 billion. The agreement, which already has the consent of creditors holding 54.5% of the debts, aims to restructure the company's financial situation and guarantee its long-term sustainability.

According to the terms of the agreement, the renegotiated debts include the 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th series of debentures, which previously had an average cost of CDI + 2.7% and a term of 22 months. Now, with the renegotiation, the cost was reduced to CDI + 1.2%, with a term extended to 72 months. This measure aims to alleviate the company's financial pressure, allowing for a more stable cash flow in the coming years.

The perimeter of the operation is restricted and only includes unsecured financial debts, such as debentures and CCBs issued with banks. Bradesco and Banco do Brasil, which have a significant share of these debts, representing 54.5% of the total issues covered in the plan, will be fundamental parts of the restructuring process.
