QUIXTAR HAS ADVISED THAT, BY THE END OF FEBRUARY 2014, IT COMPLETED THE SHIPPING OF PRODUCT BUNDLES TO THOSE CLAIMANTS WHO FILED A SECTION II (PRODUCT CREDIT) CLAIM.
On June 28, 2013, the Court approved the commencement of product bundle distributions to valid Section II claimants. On August 26, 2013, the court authorized cash payments at a 20% rate to valid Section III BSM claimants who responded to the initial notice sent by the Claims Administrator by the August 17, 2012 deadline. Distribution of these payouts were made on October 4, 2013. No payments have yet been made to Section III BSM claimants who only filed in response to the notice of the March 15, 2013 extended deadline. No payments to this latter group are expected for at least several more months. There is a possibility of a second, supplemental payment to those who were paid in October 2013, but at present this seems unlikely.
