Debtor-in-possession financing

New debt obtained by a firm during the Chapter 11 bankruptcy process, Federal Bankruptcy Rule 4001 (c)(1). This financing is unique because it is secured, that is, it has priority over existing debt, equity and other claims.

Debtor-in-Possession Financing

Financing made available to a debtor in possession, which is a company that maintains its operations during a Chapter 11 bankruptcy. A debtor in possession is generally attempting to fulfill its reorganization plan, discharging certain debts and changing any structural weaknesses to put it on a path to profitability. A company often requires financing in order to restructure, and DIP financing enables it to do so.
