                   About Key Energy

Headquartered in Houston, Texas, Key Energy, Inc., claims to be
the largest domestic onshore, rig-based well servicing contractor
based on the number of rigs owned.  The Company provides a full
range of well services to major oil companies, foreign national oil
companies and independent oil and natural gas production companies
including Chevron Texaco Exploration and Production.

Each of Misr Key Energy Investments, LLC, Key Energy Services,
Inc., Key Energy Services, LLC, and Misr Key Energy Services, LLC,
filed a voluntary petition under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code
(Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No. 16-12306) on Oct. 24, 2016.  Key's
other domestic and foreign subsidiaries are not part of the
bankruptcy filing.

As of the second quarter of 2016, the Company had approximately
$1.13 billion in total assets and approximately $1 billion in
aggregate funded debt.  As of the date of the Petition Date, the
Debtors hold approximately $29.8 million in encumbered,
unrestricted cash.  The Debtors currently have approximately $13.4
million of trade debt and other debt owed to general unsecured
creditors, as disclosed in court papers.

The Debtors have hired Sidley Austin LLP as general bankruptcy
counsel; Young, Conaway, Stargatt & Taylor, LLP, as Delaware
counsel; PJT Partners LP as investment bankers; Alvarez and Marsal
North America, LLC, as financial advisors; and Epiq Bankruptcy
Solutions, LLC, as notice, claims, solicitation and voting agent.

                            *     *     *

Key Energy filed for Chapter 11 pursuant to the terms of a plan
support agreement among Key, Platinum Equity and certain other
holders of its 6.75% Senior Notes due 2021, collectively holding
more than 89% of its outstanding Senior Notes, and certain lenders
holding more than 87% of the principal amount of loans outstanding
under Key's Term Loan Credit Agreement dated June 1, 2015.  The PSA
contemplates the reorganization of the Debtors pursuant to a
prepackaged plan of reorganization.  Key previously commenced a
solicitation for acceptance of the Plan, which was accepted by
voting holders of 99.89% in principal amount and 93.88% in number
of Key's Senior Notes and voting holders of 100% in principal
amount and 100% in number of loans under the Term Loan,
constituting the requisite number of voting holders of the Senior
Notes and term loans.  Platinum Equity, a Los Angeles-based global
investment firm with a unique focus on operations and extensive
experience helping businesses in transition, as holder of a
majority of the Company's Senior Notes, will become Key's largest
shareholder upon consummation of the Plan.

The Plan contemplates that funded debt will be reduced from
roughly $1 billion to approximately $250 million.

Under the Joint Plan, Class 6 General Unsecured Claims are
unimpaired and will recover 100%.

Monday's edition of the TCR delivers a list of indicative prices
for bond issues that reportedly trade well below par.  Prices are
obtained by TCR editors from a variety of outside sources during
the prior week we think are reliable.  Those sources may not,
however, be complete or accurate.  The Monday Bond Pricing table
is compiled on the Friday prior to publication.  Prices reported
are not intended to reflect actual trades.  Prices for actual
trades are probably different.  Our objective is to share
information, not make markets in publicly traded securities.
Nothing in the TCR constitutes an offer or solicitation to buy or
sell any security of any kind.  It is likely that some entity
affiliated with a TCR editor holds some position in the issuers
public debt and equity securities about which we report.

Each Tuesday edition of the TCR contains a list of companies with
insolvent balance sheets whose shares trade higher than $3 per
share in public markets.  At first glance, this list may look like
the definitive compilation of stocks that are ideal to sell short.
Don't be fooled.  Assets, for example, reported at historical cost
net of depreciation may understate the true value of a firm's
assets.  A company may establish reserves on its balance sheet for
liabilities that may never materialize.  The prices at which
equity securities trade in public market are determined by more
than a balance sheet solvency test.

On Thursdays, the TCR delivers a list of recently filed
Chapter 11 cases involving less than $1,000,000 in assets and
liabilities delivered to nation's bankruptcy courts.  The list
includes links to freely downloadable images of these small-dollar
petitions in Acrobat PDF format.

Each Friday's edition of the TCR includes a review about a book of
interest to troubled company professionals.  All titles are
available at your local bookstore or through Amazon.com.  Go to
http://www.bankrupt.com/books/to order any title today.

Monthly Operating Reports are summarized in every Saturday edition
of the TCR.

The Sunday TCR delivers securitization rating news from the week
then-ending.
