Reorganization Plans - A Necessary First Step in Bankruptcy Workouts

A graduate of the NYU School of Law, Nancy L. Kourland, JD, is an associate at Rosen & Associates, PC. Nancy L. Kourland focuses on bankruptcy law, specifically chapter 11 cases and workouts.

Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code refers to reorganization of debtors’ finances in the case of workouts. A workout is a financial plan detailing repayment of debt and is an out-of-court alternative to bankruptcy negotiated between debtors and creditors. In the case of corporations, reorganization of finances is a major step in proceeding with a workout. Because workouts hinge on the availability of future cash flows to repay debt while sustaining operations, a reorganization plan that works out these specifics has to be put together. A reorganization plan generally includes forecasted financial statements for at least three years that show how the firm will finance operations while paying off its debt.

In cases where there is more than one creditor, those that do not agree with the terms of repayment or the viability of the reorganization plan are free to pursue other avenues for debt recovery.
