Chapter 11 Bankruptcy: The Customer’s Impact on a Viable Plan or Sale

Updated on: April 3, 2024

ABI Webinar Series Part 2 of 3 | Organized by Ken Mann, Managing Director, SC&H Capital

During a Chapter 11 bankruptcy sale, it is crucial to consider various factors, with one significant factor being the customers involved.

In the second installment of the American Bankruptcy Institute (ABI) webinar series sponsored by SC&H Capital, experts explore the value customers can add to (or detract from) Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings. Topics include:

  • The importance of assuming or rejecting customer supply agreements and the impact that customer behavior can have on the success of the reorganization or sale process
  • The creditor role of a customer that can arise by virtue of rejection damages
  • The consent and approval rights that customers may have in the Chapter 11 process and the implications of these rights for both the debtor and potential bidders in the sale process
  • The impact that a change of ownership can have on customers, the protections they’re afforded, and how both are addressed in Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings

Whether you represent customers, creditors, or are simply interested in learning more about the bankruptcy process, this discussion will provide a comprehensive view of the role of customers in Chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings.
