Prepackaged Bankruptcy

A situation whereby a company and its creditors agree on the terms of bankruptcy before it is filed with bankruptcy court. That is, the company and its creditors agree how and how much each creditor will be repaid and the terms of repayment. All parties, including shareholders if applicable, must agree to the prepackaged bankruptcy before it takes effect. A prepackaged bankruptcy makes it easier and less expensive for all parties when a company files Chapter 11 and reorganizes.
