In many distressed situations, there are opportunities for clients to acquire assets at discounted prices. Gensburg Calandriello & Kanter is providing this bi-monthly summary of recent Chapter 11 cases filed in nearby bankruptcy courts including those in Illinois, Indiana, and Wisconsin in which debtors (not necessarily clients of GCK) own assets that may be of interest, thereby making GCK clients aware of potential opportunities and ventures in the distressed assets market. Cases listed under “Assets for Sale” feature assets currently available. In cases listed under “New Filings,” the debtors have not yet found it necessary or otherwise decided to liquidate their assets, but may nonetheless be receptive to inquiries or offers to acquire some or all of the assets that they own.
The following is an updating list of cases which are currently in, or believed to soon enter, chapter 11 bankruptcy. We hope that these summaries provide you with the ability to quickly determine the relevancy of any given case and gauge your level of interest in the assets contained within.
