QUORUM HEALTH: Kairos Supports Appointment of Equity Committee

Kairos Capital Management LP has expressed support to the proposed appointment of a committee to represent equity holders in Quorum Health Corporation’s Chapter 11 case.

In court filings, Kairos said it supports Mudrick Capital Management, L.P.’s request to appoint an equity committee and its objection to confirmation of Quorum Health’s proposed Chapter 11 plan.

The plan, if confirmed by the bankruptcy court, would wipe out existing equity and give ownership of the reorganized company to certain creditors, according to Kairos.

Kairos owns approximately 709,000 shares in Quorum Health.
