1985年成立的美国知名模型企业Hobbico(旗下品牌包括大家熟知的Axial、ARRMA、Team Durango等)今天给RCFans发出两封邮件,正式通知Hobbico提出申请破产。Hobbico通知我们,进入破产程序并非希望最终关闭公司,而是希望通过重组、出售公司业务让公司降低成本和债务(世界上有多个行业,例如航空业、汽车业有不少破产成功重组案例),Hobbico希望未来建立更稳固和可持续发展的企业。在提出申请破产期间,Hobbico强调业务继续运作。RCFans作为该公司多年的合作伙伴,希望Hobbico能够重回正轨,继续为大家带来优质的产品。


以下是Hobbico希望RCFans发出的正式声明内容:

Hobbico, Inc. Files Petition for Chapter 11 Relief and Pursues Sale of Company
Seeks Protection from Creditors to Restructure and Attract New Capital Investment;
Operations Continue Throughout Bankruptcy Process

CHAMPAIGN, Ill. – January 10, 2018 – Hobbico, Inc. (“Hobbico” or “the Company”) announced today that it has filed a petition for relief under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code while it seeks an orderly finalization and implementation of its comprehensive restructuring plan. The petition was filed today with the United States Bankruptcy Court – Wilmington of Delaware In conjunction, Hobbico also announced its plan to sell the company.

Since 1971, Hobbico has grown in to one of the largest United States distributors of radio-control and general hobby products. Built up over time and with the best intentions to further grow its business, Hobbico’s debt has added too much leverage for the Company, and it has been unable to successfully restructure to help meet its financial obligations. With the added impact over the last few years of an increasingly competitive industry, market headwinds and a series of one-off events with key suppliers, Hobbico’s current financial position is unsustainable.

“Despite Hobbico’s core strengths, our business has faced a number of challenges in the last few years, and we have taken steps to ensure all available options to restore the stability of the Company have been exhausted,” said Louis Brownstone, President of Hobbico, Inc. “However, while these efforts were taken to rebuild revenue and profitability, they did not sufficiently address our challenges and we decided to pursue a Chapter 11 reorganization and attempt to attract new capital investment.”

By filing for Chapter 11, Hobbico is seeking protection from its creditors in order to allow for an orderly finalization and implementation of its restructuring plan. This approach allows the Company to continue to operate the business throughout the bankruptcy process. Hobbico intends to use the bankruptcy filing and possible sale of the business to reduce debt, restructure liabilities, attract new capital investment and position the company for future growth. The filing and potential sale also aim to preserve Hobbico’s industry-leading business, including allowing the Company to invest in new products and continue supporting all of its customers and extended business network.

“Taking the necessary step to file for bankruptcy is difficult, but it will help preserve the value of our business and it’s the right thing to do for our company and our employees,” added Brownstone. “Under the process afforded to us under Chapter 11, we hope to reach an agreement with our creditors that will allow us to implement a restructuring plan that fully addresses our financial challenges while simultaneously identifying a prospective buyer that shares our vision of providing the best possible outcome for our employees and the future of Hobbico.”

    这是一个不好的消息。。  杜兰戈基本销声匿迹了。。ARRMA配件也难搞。。 AXIAL作为老厂应该不至于会短时间内绝迹。不过就看哪个来接盘重组下,预计重组后有可能会放弃掉A厂的部分业务吧。
