(AP) Bowling center operator AMF Bowling Worldwide says it has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy so it can implement a pre-arranged restructuring agreement.


Virginia-based AMF announced the bankruptcy filing and the agreement Tuesday morning. The agreement is with a majority of the company's first lien lenders and the landlord of a majority of its bowling centers.


AMF says in a news release that it expects to complete the restructuring and leave Chapter11 in about five months.


The company says the restructuring will eliminate a significant amount of outstanding debt.


Chief financial officer and chief operating officer Steve Satterwhite says the company needs financial flexibility to improve its bowling centers and make other long-term investments.


Bowling centers will continue normal operations during the restructuring.
