Nov 22 (Reuters) - Steinhoff International said on Thursday that its U.S.-based unit Mattress Firm Inc emerged out of bankruptcy with access to $525 million in exit financing, within two months of filing for Chapter 11 protection.
The mattress retailer closed roughly 660 underperforming stores, said Steinhoff, which has been working on a deal to restructure the debt of some units with creditors after revealing multi-billion euro holes in its balance sheet.
Mattress Firm had filed for voluntary bankruptcy protection in early October, gaining some breathing room to restructure and shore up its finances. (Reporting by Muvija M in Bengaluru; Editing by Gopakumar Warrier)
