Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. LP (NYSE: KKR) portfolio company Samson Resource Corp. has filed for bankruptcy with a plan to reorganize the oil and gas business under new owners. If the proposal receives bankruptcy court approval, Samson's second-lien lenders --including Silver Point Capital LP, Cerberus Capital Management and Anschutz Investment Co.--would wind up owning the company’s equity.

Anschutz is a Denver-based investment firm; New York-based Cerberus is a private equity firm; and Silver Point is a Greenwich, Connecticut-based hedge fund with a focus on distressed companies.
