  • Second, a company can get out of certain contracts, think leases for stores or labor contracts between its employees.

  • This could be great for businesses, but not great for the people on the other end of those contracts, like landlords or employees.

  • The third, the company will work to get a payment plan approved by the courts and by its creditors.

  • Part of that payment plan will probably include some debt equity swaps, so creditors will get shares in the company to forgive the debt.

  • But then, sometimes it doesn't work.

  • That's when liquidation happens.

  • a company can file a different kind of bankruptcy called Chapter seven, or the more likely scenario is that a company will file for Chapter 11 a second time.

  • Its nickname is Chapter 22 11 plus 11.

  • When this happens, the company's assets are tallied up and sold off one by one.

  • That's when you get going out of business sales.
