SIRVA Receives NYSE Delisting Notification
CHICAGO, Nov. 19 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- SIRVA, Inc. (NYSE: SIR), a global relocation services provider, today announced that it has been notified by the New York Stock Exchange that the NYSE intends to suspend trading in SIRVA's common stock prior to the NYSE's opening on November 26, 2007, and that the NYSE will commence procedures to delist SIRVA's common stock.
The NYSE noted that SIRVA's common stock lately had been trading at abnormally low share prices, making it unsuitable for continued listing on the NYSE. SIRVA had been in communication with the NYSE regarding its noncompliance with continued listing standards, but was unsuccessful in its efforts to avoid suspension and potential delisting. The Company does not intend to appeal the NYSE's decision.
SIRVA expects trading in its common stock will be transferred to the over- the-counter market following the suspension of trading in its common stock on the NYSE.

SIRVA Reaches Restructuring Agreement with its
Files Pre-Packaged Plan of Reorganization
Secures $150 Million DIP Financing Facility, to Convert to
$215 Million Senior Secured Exit Facility
Expects Normal Operations to Continue
Only U.S. Operations are Part of Filing
CHICAGO, February 5, 2008 — SIRVA, Inc. (SIRV.PK), a global
relocation services provider, today announced that it reached an
agreement with its lenders to restructure its senior secured debt
through a voluntary, pre-packaged Chapter 11 reorganization, which
will allow it to finalize the restructuring of its debt while continuing to
operate its business and serve its customers. SIRVA’s operations
outside of the U.S. are not part of the Chapter 11 filing.
SIRVA said it is taking this action to free up its operations from a heavy
debt service burden and to strengthen its balance sheet so that it is
better positioned to weather the continuing weak U.S. housing market.
The restructuring is embodied in a plan of reorganization which
received overwhelming support from the Company’s lenders. The plan
will reduce SIRVA’s outstanding bank debt by approximately $200
million and annual cash interest expense by approximately $54 million.
As a result of the plan, the outstanding capital stock of the Company
will be cancelled upon consummation of the restructuring.
