Outside of bankruptcy, many companies utilize exchange programs to repurchase outstanding loans at a discount or to renegotiate debt on more favorable terms. Depending upon the nature of the obligation involved, compliance with federal securities laws may be required. Within a bankruptcy proceeding, however, there has been some question as to whether such debt exchange programs can be used apart from, and prior to, plan confirmation. Recently, at least one court has answered that question in the affirmative, in In re Energy Future Holdings (Civil Case No. 1:14-cv-00723; Bankruptcy Case No. 14-bk-10979).

On Feb. 9, one of the plaintiffs in the federal securities class action against Nvidia Corp., Roberto Cohen, filed a petition for writ of certiorari with the U.S. Supreme Court, seeking review of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit's Oct. 2, 2014, decision affirming dismissal of the action, specifically, the court's holding that Item 303 of U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Regulation S-K does not create a duty to disclose for purposes of an omission actionable under Section 10(b) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and SEC Rule 10b-5. Cohen's petition (, Petition No. 14-975) argues that this holding by the Ninth Circuit in , 768 F.3d 1046 (9th Cir. 2014), conflicts with the Second Circuit's recent holding in , No. 13-0627, 2015 U.S. App. LEXIS 428 (2d Cir. Jan. 12, 2015), and the Third Circuit's 15-year-old decision in , 226 F.3d 275 (3d Cir. 2000). Although the Ninth Circuit's opinion states that its holding regarding Item 303 disclosures is consistent, not in conflict, with , a split among these circuits exists nonetheless.
