Argentine holdout creditors reach $5 billion deal in debt dispute, lawyer says
Creditors fighting Argentina in US courts for more than a decade over defaulted debt have reached a $5 billion agreement to settle the dispute, a lawyer representing the investors said on Wednesday.
"We have had an agreement on economic terms with Argentina since Thursday," Matthew McGill, a lawyer representing lead holdout creditors Elliott Management and Aurelius Capital Management said in a hearing before a US Federal Appeals court in Manhattan.
McGill called it a "$5 billion transaction" but then added the parties needed more time to finish the deal.
