Canada appeal court upholds ABCP restructuring plan

TORONTO (Reuters) - The Ontario Court of Appeal has upheld a lower court’s approval of a restructuring plan for asset-backed commercial paper that was worth C$32 billion ($30.2 billion) before the market froze a year ago, putting investors a step closer to recovering at least some money.

The ruling released on Monday is a blow for corporate noteholders who had objected to the restructuring plan for nonbank-sponsored commercial paper, known as ABCP.

This segment of the short-term debt market seized up in August 2007 as concerns grew about U.S. subprime mortgages.
