Giving Companies A Fighting Chance With DIP Financing
The goal of a Chapter 11 bankruptcy is to reorganize a struggling, cash-poor company—not to liquidate it. But since the owners of these companies generally don’t have the cash on hand for payments and negotiating power, they often find it takes far more time and effort to secure the capital than they expected. The owners of insolvent companies may not be content to give up on their businesses, but they often find they have to put up quite a fight to keep going.
Many businesses filing Chapter 11 would love nothing more than to get funds that allow them to recover from liquidity and debt issues and restructure their company, all while learning from their mistakes and creating a stronger business with the potential to thrive. This is something that General Motors was able to do after it received funding from the U.S. Department of Treasury in 2017.
But GM, as one of the world’s biggest automakers, has power that most companies don’t. So what does a small business owner do when the government isn’t going to step in and help? They look into debtor in possession (DIP) financing, which is a first-priority debt that can be used by an insolvent company to restructure, pay off liabilities, and order needed supplies.
Where to Get DIP Financing
Once they learn about DIP financing, your clients may be relieved, thinking that they finally have a workable solution. But that relief may be short-lived if they try to secure DIP financing from traditional sources such as banks. Traditional lenders are often hesitant to lend to small companies that are admittedly having financial troubles, even if the restructured organization represents a promising investment. A company’s next step may be to look at current shareholders as lenders, but for DIP financing, lenders can’t be company insiders. When turning to alternative lenders, companies need to be careful because the goal of DIP funds must be to help the company—not to buy the company and its assets.
