The SFO debt is currently selling for 100% of par value, while the SFI is selling at 20% of par value. Although, thinking of these securities as purely debt is misleading as there is a high likelihood that they will be converted to equity as Six Flags’ exits bankruptcy. In this case, purchasing the SFI debt at the par value essentially quintuples the expected returns of the SFI debt, which causes the returns to be slightly higher than those expected of the SFO debt (Exhibit 3). This discrepancy is small enough that it may be explained by the probability that the proposal is rejected and that SFI does not receive the equity, however, if this were the case it would be unlikely that the SFO debt would trade at par value.
