According to a statement issued by the company, creditors voted 73 per cent favor of the plan as both suppliers and former employees agreed to a distribution of about eight percent of the amounts claimed.

"The positive vote allows Durham Furniture to complete the final stage of its restructuring, including an injection of new equity and a new lending agreement," the statement said.
