ALLOU IN DISTRESS: Allou Healthcare Inc. has consented to an involuntary bankruptcy court petition filed against the firm by three lenders in a Brooklyn federal bankruptcy court, and said it has hired Richard A. Sebastiao as chief restructuring officer. The lenders — Congress Financial, Citibank and LaSalle Business Credit — forced Allou into bankruptcy court after discovering that the distribution firm’s assets and inventory were insufficient to satisfy their claims, which total at least $67.7 million. Allou saw more than $80 million in inventory destroyed in a warehouse fire. The firm is not implicated in the fire and it is suing some of its insurers, seeking more than $100 million.
