Item 8.01. Other Events.


On August 15, 2023, Anagram Holdings, LLC and Anagram International, Inc. (together, the “Issuers”), which are direct and indirect subsidiaries of Party City Holdco Inc. (the “Company”), elected to not make the interest payment on their 15.00% PIK/Cash Senior Secured First Lien Notes due 2025 (the “First Lien Notes”). As provided in the indenture governing the First Lien Notes, the Issuers have entered the 30-day grace period to make the interest payment.


The Issuers entered into a forbearance agreement with both a majority of the holders of their First Lien Notes and a majority of the holders of their 10.00% PIK/Cash Senior Secured Second Lien Notes due 2026 (the “Second Lien Notes”).


The Issuers are currently in discussions with holders of a majority of their First Lien Notes and Second Lien Notes regarding deleveraging and financing transactions.


The Issuers and their subsidiaries expect to continue to operate their business in the ordinary course, including by serving their customers and paying employees and vendors as usual. During the forbearance period, the Issuers expect to have continued access to their cash and borrowings available under their ABL Facility.



Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Information


This Form 8-K includes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Some of the forward-looking statements in this Form 8-K can be identified by the use of forward-looking terms such as “believes,” “expects,” “projects,” “forecasts,” “may,” “will,” “estimates,” “should,” “would,” “anticipates,” “plans” or other comparable terms. Forward-looking statements speak only as of the date they are made and, except for the Company’s ongoing obligations under the U.S. federal securities laws, the Company does not undertake any obligation to publicly update any forward-looking statement, whether to reflect actual results of operations; changes in financial condition; changes in results of operations and liquidity, changes in general U.S. or international economic or industry conditions; changes in estimates, expectations or assumptions; or other circumstances, conditions, developments or events arising after the date of this Form 8-K. You should not rely on forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. The Company’s actual results may differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of certain risks and other factors, which could include the following: risks and uncertainties relating to the Chapter 11 Cases (the “Chapter 11 Cases”) filed by the Company and certain of its subsidiaries in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas (the “Bankruptcy Court”), including but not limited to, the Company’s ability to obtain Bankruptcy Court approval with respect to motions in the Chapter 11 Cases, the effects of the Chapter 11 Cases on the Company and on the interests of various constituents, Bankruptcy Court rulings in the Chapter 11 Cases and the outcome of the Chapter 11 Cases in general, the length of time the Company will operate under the Chapter 11 Cases, risks associated with any third-party motions in the Chapter 11 Cases, the potential adverse effects of the Chapter 11 Cases on the Company’s liquidity or results of operations and increased legal and other professional costs necessary to execute the Company’s reorganization; the conditions to which the second tranche of borrowings under Company’s debtor-in-possession facility is subject and the risk that these conditions may not be satisfied for various reasons, including for reasons outside of the Company’s control; whether the Company will emerge, in whole or in part, from Chapter 11 Cases as a going concern; the consequences of the acceleration of the Company’s debt obligations; trading price and volatility of the Company’s common stock, trading price and volatility of the Company’s indebtedness and other claims, as well as other risk factors set forth in the Company’s Annual Report on Form 10-K and Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q filed with the SEC. The Company therefore cautions readers against relying on these forward-looking statements. All forward-looking statements attributable to the Company or persons acting on the Company’s behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by the foregoing cautionary statements.






Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by the undersigned hereunto duly authorized.
