New World Resources Plc:The main business of Czech coal miner New World Resources (NWR) filed for insolvency on Tuesday after failing to secure government aid, but could still agree a reorganisation plan to stay afloat-Reuters.The business, OKD, which owns the country's only hard coal mines, is the latest miner worldwide to seek creditor protection amid slumping prices.Loss-making OKD said in its insolvency filing that it owed 17 billion crowns (629.01 million euros) and held assets worth less than 7 billion crowns.Most of OKD debts are guarantees for the parent company's bonds and loans which could become payable prematurely due to breaching debt terms.OKD said it did not have enough money to cover its liabilities but expected to receive payments from customers to maintain operations and pay wages.The group also said it would meet orders while preparing a restructuring plan involving the closure of multiple mines.NWR warned last week OKD would run out of money by the middle of May unless the Czech government and company creditors agreed a takeover or restructuring deal.The government has rejected any deal that would benefit the company's owners and debt holders but has not completely ruled out taking it over.Prime Minister Bohuslav Sobotka said keeping the largest number of miners in work was a priority, and ministers would meet to address the situation on Wednesday.According to the insolvency filing, OKD also owes 64.7 million euros to its parent companies.
