One trade observer said the restructuring plan that reportedly has been agreed to is "very similar" to management's initial proposal. The initial restructuring proposal called for Leonard Green & Partners, a Los Angeles investment group that controls Kash n' Karry, to invest $10 million cash into the 100-store company. Its shareholding would have been reduced from 61% to about 15%. Trade creditors were not expected to be affected by the restructuring.
