In August 2017, PBGC, Avaya, and its First Lien Lenders reached an agreement settling PBGC’s claims with respect to Avaya’s anticipated termination of the Avaya Salaried Plan and providing protections for the Avaya Hourly Plan, which will remain ongoing. Avaya filed an amended plan of reorganization on October 24, 2017, which included minor adjustments to the prior settlement.
