Liquid Files Voluntary Petition Under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code

HOBOKEN, N.J., Jan. 27, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Liquid Holdings Group, Inc. (OTC PINK:LIQD) (“Liquid” or the “Company”), a SaaS provider of investment management solutions for the buy side, announced today that it and its subsidiary Liquid Prime Holdings, LLC, each filed a voluntary petition in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (the “Court”) seeking relief under the provisions of Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code. The Company believes the Chapter 11 process will provide the greatest flexibility to pursue viable options for asset sales or other alternatives.

Liquid will continue to operate the business as a debtor-in-possession in its Chapter 11 case. The Company has filed a series of first-day motions with the Court that will allow it to continue to conduct business without interruption. These motions are designed primarily to minimize the impact on the Company’s operations, customers and employees.

The Company’s counsel in Chapter 11 is Blank Rome LLP. The Company has engaged Carl Marks Advisory Group, LLC as its bankruptcy financial advisor and SenaHill Advisors, LLC as its investment banker.
