Chapter 11: Options for Reinstating Accelerated Debt After a Monetary Default
Lender Strategies to Avoid Being Sidelined During Confirmation; Debtor Strategies for Keeping Low Interest Loans
Recording of a 90-minute CLE video webinar with Q&A
This CLE webinar will discuss whether and how Chapter 11 debtors can reinstate attractive loans, even those accelerated pre-petition, while at the same time preventing the lender from objecting to confirmation. The panel will review debtor and lender positions regarding what has to be done, how to determine the cost of reinstatement, timing, and payment as well as disparate views on a similar question of whether an unsecured claim is "unimpaired" by a plan if the claim's treatment does not include post-petition interest.
- Secured loans
- Benefits of reinstatement to debtors
- Lender opposition to reinstatement
- Statutory basis for reinstatement in plan of reorganization
- Harmonizing the relevant Bankruptcy Code provisions
- Current cases
- Unresolved issues
- Unsecured loans and post-petition interest
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- What defaults must be reinstated in order to "unimpair" a secured creditor?
- Do Sections 1124(2)(A) and 365(b)(2)(D) create an exception to Section 1123(d)?
- What types of unique state law considerations affect the analysis?
- Can default interest and fees be challenged as an unenforceable penalty?
