Chem Rx Files Chapter 11 to Facilitate Reorganization

LONG BEACH, N.Y., May 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Chem Rx Corporation (Pink Sheets: CHRX), the third largest long term care pharmacy in the United States, along with certain operating subsidiaries today announced that it has filed voluntary petitions for reorganization under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.  This process will provide the most effective way for Chem Rx Corporation ("Chem Rx") to preserve the value of the company for all stakeholders, including employees, and maintain normal business operations while it works with its lenders to reach agreement on a restructuring of the company.

"Over the past 40 years, we have won our clients' loyalty by providing them with the drugs and supplies they need accurately, on time and at competitive prices," said Jerry Silva, Chem Rx CEO.  "This restructuring process will provide us with the court protection necessary to ensure that Chem Rx continues to provide these services.  We expect to reach an agreement with our lenders that will allow us to facilitate a reorganization and position us strongly for the future."

Chem Rx's management team led by Jerry Silva, CEO, and Steve Silva, president and COO, will continue to be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the company.  Chem Rx has engaged investment banker Lazard Middle Market LLC to help it facilitate a restructuring of the company.
