Reasons Why Companies and Organizations File for Bankruptcy

Insolvency. Companies who have enough valuable assets but do not have enough liquidity (lack of enough cash to operate) would be forced to file bankruptcy. Getting relief from creditors in order to resolve cash flow problems sometimes become the best resort for companies based on legal advice.

More Liabilities Than Assets. Sometimes, even if the company’s cash flow can suffice, legal counsel would advice businesses to file bankruptcy if their liabilities exceed their assets. Companies applying for bankruptcy because of this reason often anticipate to receive a restricting of their debts and discharging as much as possible which is reliant on how both parties (creditors and debtors) cooperate making this option innately risky.

Lack of a Strategic Reorganization. Based on previous bankruptcy stories, there is a number of large American airlines who filed for bankruptcy because of their inability to compete with competitors. Companies who had gone through the same experience did not necessarily have cash flow or insolvency issues, but rather they deemed to file bankruptcy with the fear of losing their market share to their competitors if they failed to change their debt structure.
