Latest ABI Publication Examines Debtor-In-Possession Financing

Alexandria, Va. — ABI's newest publication, Debtor-in-Possession Financing: Funding a Chapter 11 Case, details the application of the Bankruptcy Code to the real-world challenges of extending credit to a chapter 11 debtor. Focused particularly on § 364, DIP Financing explains common lending practices, including the critical financial analyses that lenders should complete before entering into a DIP agreement. The book offers a unique look at the benefits—and challenges—for those who take on the risk of providing secured credit to troubled businesses. Concluding with a detailed analysis of a "Model DIP Financing Order," DIP Financing provides practitioners, lenders and debtors with an understanding of the history behind DIP financing and a practical explanation of its often-complex mechanics.
