Abengoa's restructuring plan collapses after creditors vote down deadline extension

MADRID, Feb 22 (Reuters) - Troubled Spanish renewables firm Abengoa said on Monday that its creditors refused to extend a deadline for negotiating a restructuring agreement, automatically invalidating a preliminary deal.

Since September the company has repeatedly postponed the deadline for the agreement while it searched for alternatives to a 20 million euro ($24.19 million) funding offer from the regional government of Andalusia that was withdrawn.

The board will meet immediately to decide how to best protect the company’s interests, Abengoa said.
