Why do individuals or companies choose to file chapter 11 bankruptcies?



Many times, people ask us why a company would file a Chapter 11 bankruptcy in Georgia. There are basically two reasons to file a Chapter 11 bankruptcy. One is to obtain an orderly liquidation of assets, for instance, if the company is not profitable. It cannot be profitable, but yet, there needs to be an orderly liquidation of its assets. Then a Chapter 11 might work. The other reason and primary reason that we file Chapter 11s is that the business is truly profitable but just has a cash flow crunch such as might be the case for some businesses during COVID-19, if you haven’t been able to work your business like you normally do. Your sales have fallen down. You still have employee salaries that need to be paid, but yet, in the long term, the business can be profitable.

A Chapter 11 would give Why a Company files Chapter 11 bankruptcy in Georgiayou a breathing spell. For instance, in a Chapter 11, you can have up to four and six months to actually file a plan to start repayment to your creditors.
