Revlon (REV) stockholders ask for court blessing to form an equity committee.
Why this matters? - Revlon might owe less than the $3.54 billion in bonds and loans it brought with it into bankruptcy. The beauty-products maker may not owe anything to lenders that were accidentally repaid in 2020 by their loan agent, Citigroup. To the extent that Revlon isn’t on the hook for either of those claims of accidental prepayment, shareholders are more likely to retain some value in the bankruptcy.
