On Friday, MF Global Holdings will ask for court approval of a liquidation plan for its assets and repayment of creditors, according to Reuters. The brokerage would wind up repaying the bulk of the claim from lender JPMorgan Chase & Co and would also pay unsecured creditors close to 34 cents on the dollar. The plan is being presented to Judge Martin Glenn in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Manhattan.

The brokerage is led by former New Jersey Governor Jon Corzine. It filed for Chapter 11 in October of 2011 after a $6.3 billion exposure to European sovereign debt.


A report was issued Thursday by former FBI director Louis Freeh said, “the risky business strategy engineered and executed by Corzine and other officers and their failure to improve the company’s inadequate systems.”

The plan was originally proposed by some of the largest unsecured creditors of the brokerage, including Silver Point Capital, Knighthead Capital and Cyrus Capital Partners.

The parent entity of the brokerage will subordinate $275 million of its $1.887 billion claim against against MF Global’s finance unit under JPMorgan’s $1.2 billion claim against the firm’s estate. The settlement could enhance the potential recovery of JPMorgan to 76 cents for every dollar on claims. In previous versions of the plan, the deal came in at 73 percent.
