Yellow Cab Affiliation, Inc. Announces Deadlines for Filing Proofs of Claim

CHICAGO, Oct. 2, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Yellow Cab Affiliation, Inc., or the "Company," announced today that on August 7, 2015, the U.S. Bankruptcy Court entered an order, known as the "Bar Date Order," establishing certain deadlines for the filing of proofs of claim in the Company's chapter 11 case.

Pursuant to the Bar Date Order, except otherwise specified in that Order, all persons, entities and governmental units who have a claim or potential claim against the Company that arose prior to March 18, 2015 must file a proof of claim on or before October 9, 2015 at 5:00 pm Central Time in order to vote on a plan of reorganization and receive a payment. People who believe that they have been injured in or by Yellow Cab may have a claim against the Company.

As part of these proceedings, and as required by the Bar Date Order, on August 11, 2015, Yellow Cab Affiliation sent, via first-class U.S. mail, the Bar Date Notice to any potential creditor, or party that may have a monetary claim against the Company, whose identity was known by the Company. Note that mere receipt of the Notice does not necessarily mean that a recipient has a claim.

Proof of claim forms, a copy of the Bar Date Order and the Company's bankruptcy schedules may be obtained by visiting the website of Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions, LLC ("Epiq"), the Company's claims and notice agent, or by calling 1-646-282-2400.

Proofs of claim should be sent, (i) if by first-class mail, to Yellow Cab Affiliation, Inc. Claims Processing Center, c/o Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions, LLC, P.O. Box 4420 Beaverton, Oregon, 97076-4420, or (ii) if by overnight mail or hand delivery, to Yellow Cab Affiliation, Inc., c/o Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions, LLC, 10300 SW Allen Blvd, Beaverton, Oregon, 97005.

Importantly, Epiq cannot advise creditors or potential creditors whether they should file a proof of claim. In addition, claims will be resolved prior to or via the Company's Plan of Reorganization ("Plan") which is subject to Court approval. While the Company is working diligently to move through this process as quickly as possible, there are no set dates for when the Plan will be filed or approved, or when claims will be reconciled and paid.
