About DailyDAC

DailyDAC – Distressed Analysis & Commentary / Distressed Asset Central – is the leading source of information for private equity, family offices, and other opportunistic investors; owners, board members and C-Suite executives of struggling businesses; and attorneys, accountants, investment bankers, and other trusted advisors who do not specialize in corporate restructuring and insolvency. DailyDAC’s sister websites, Financial Poise and ChamberWise, provide a wealth of information about other topics for investors and business owners/executives.

DailyDAC provides these resources:


Written in plain English, the articles which appear on DailyDAC are intended to educate and inform. Our contributors, who include some of the worlds leading experts, have agreed to write in a way not designed to advocate or argue any particular view but, instead, seek only to educate. Authors credentials are vetted before we accept the author in our ranks; each article is peer reviewed; and each is edited by our internal team of editors. DailyDAC neither solicits or accepts payment for publishing any article.

The views expressed in DailyDAC articles are those of its authors and not necessarily of DailyDAC or of the firms at which the authors work.

Opportunistic Deal Database (ODD)

DailyDAC, since 2010, has aggregated information about opportunities to purchase or invest in distressed or under-performing assets and companies; excess assets; and other situations involving significant urgency on the part of the seller.

Our Research Team gathers this information from myriad sources, including but not limited to public notices, government filings, and court dockets.

Fiduciaries (e.g. trustees, debtors-in-possession, assigness, receivers), foreclosing creditors under Article 9 of the Uniform Commercial Code or otherwise; intermediaries (investment bankers and brokers); and other trusted advisors have come to understand that listing a deal behind the DailyDAC paywall discretely exposes it to a universe of serious potential purchasers, lenders, and investors.

Free Weekly Newsletter

Each Tuesday morning we send out a newsletter containing our latest articles, current Public Notices and any new deals we have added to the database through the previous week. If you’d like to receive this newsletter, you can sign up here.

Public Notice

Because DailyDAC enjoys robust website traffic and because its free weekly e-newsletter has more than 10,000 subscribers, DailyDAC long ago became an industry-recognized venue for restructuring and insolvency professionals to provide public notice of distressed asset sales. Fiduciaries who wish to list sale opportunities for the world to see (rather than limiting exposure to the ODD Deal Database) pay a publication notice fee. Learn More.

Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Alert System

DailyDAC’s Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Alert System is, what we believe to be, a comprehensive list of all new chapter 11 petitions filed in the United States. It is updated constantly throughout the day, seven days a week, much more quickly than any other similar resource in existence. The Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Alert System is completely free to view and you may sign up to receive email notifications.
