Vertis has announced it that it will “embark on final step in capital restructuring; files voluntary pre-packaged plan of reorganization to complete previously announced plan” — the company is going bankrupt again to cut $700 million of debt.

A voluntary, pre-packaged Chapter 11 filing aims at reducing the company’s total debt by approximately 60 percent, or $700 million, lowering interest costs and increasing liquidity.

GE Capital has committed a $200 million debtor-in-possession revolving credit facility that Vertis will use to fund operations during bankruptcy.

Vertis filed Chapter 11 in July 2008 while closing a merger with American Color Graphics. The merger was finalized in October 2008.
