SAS AB (“SAS”) and each of its subsidiaries that are subject to the voluntary chapter 11 process in the U.S., will each within short file a Statement of Financial Affairs (SOFA) and Schedule of Assets and Liabilities (SOAL) with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York. The filings are part of the SAS’ voluntary chapter 11 process in the U.S. and contain detailed financial information, as of the chapter 11 petition date (July 5, 2022), including information on assets, liabilities and revenue, for each SAS debtor that is subject to the chapter 11 process.
The financial information contained in the SOFAs and SOALs is unaudited and reflects the SAS debtor entities’ reasonable efforts to report the financial information of each individual debtor on a non-consolidated basis. Accordingly, the amounts listed in the SOFAs and SOALs will likely differ, at times materially, from the consolidated accounts presented by SAS in the company’s financial reports.
In connection with these court filings, SAS announces certain consolidated financial information for the Group as of June 30, 2022, see table below. The financial information has not been audited or reviewed by SAS’ auditor.
