Bankruptcy Claims Trading

Claims trading, simply put, is the purchase and sale of claims held by creditors against debtors in a bankruptcy proceeding. This includes claims for goods sold, services rendered, or damages asserted by contract counterparties such as landlords or professional service providers. Terminated financial contracts (e.g., ISDA agreements) form the basis for another frequently traded type of claim in past years. Learn more in An Introduction to Bankruptcy Claims Trading by Timothy C. Bennett.

How to Read a Balance Sheet

Knowing how to read a balance sheet can help an investor or lender understand a business. However, a balance sheet should neither stand alone nor be taken at face value. Diligence about categories on the balance sheet is critical not only to discover issues but also to gaining comfort with the way the business has operated. Looking for what is not obvious will yield a different—and far superior—understanding of information that appears to be straightforward. Better to learn at the front end what can be known and, if necessary, find a new transaction, than to reap disappointment on the back end. Beneath the surface of balance sheet assets, liabilities, and equity lies information essential to better grasp the nuances of the business. Learn more in David Gottlieb’s and Michael Schwarzmann’s Finding Truth in a Debtor’s Balance Sheet: Analyzing Assets, Liabilities, and Equity.

In re SW Boston Hotel Venture, LLC

In bankruptcy, an oversecured creditor (in which the value of its collateral is higher than its claim) is first in line to be paid. Unfortunately, oversecured creditors are also entitled to post-petition interest (interest that accrues or would accrue after the start of bankruptcy proceedings, regardless of whether or not it is allowed in the proceeding). As a debtor who successfully increases the value of the asset/collateral—how do you alleviate an increased claim and maintain liquidity? And what say does the secured creditor have in how the interest rate is calculated? Read Lender vs Debtor on the Payment of Post-Petition Interest by Christopher Cahill to learn how the First Circuit in In re SW Boston Hotel Venture, LLC approved of the bankruptcy court’s adoption of a “flexible” approach as to when a secured creditor became oversecured, by contrast to the “single valuation” approach used by other courts.
