In re Masonite Corporation, et al., Case No. 09-10844 (PJW) Jointly Administered
United States Bankruptcy Court, District of Delaware (http://www.deb.uscourts.gov )
General Information:

On March 16, 2009, the Debtors filed voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code (the "Bankruptcy Code"). The sixteen cases are jointly administered under Case No. 09-10844 (collectively, the "Bankruptcy Cases"). The Bankruptcy Cases are pending before the Honorable Peter J. Walsh in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware.

Pursuant to the Bankruptcy Code (specifically including, but not limited to, 11 U.S.C. § 362), a debtor is afforded certain protection against its creditors; the Bankruptcy Code prohibits creditors from taking certain actions related to debts that may have been owing prior to the commencement of the Bankruptcy Cases. If you believe that you might be a creditor of the Debtors based upon debts arising prior to March 16, 2009, and you are considering taking action based upon your status as a creditor, you may wish to seek legal advice. The staff of the Clerk of the Bankruptcy Court and the staff of Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC are not permitted to give legal advice.

Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act (CCAA):
On March 16, 2009, select Canadian subsidiaries obtained an Order under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act in Canada. For more information, please visit Ernst & Young Inc. Restructuring Information.
