Liquidation is a process in which assets of a company are sold off to settle its debts. This happens when a company experiences financial problems and can no longer meet its financial obligations. The goal of liquidation is to make money for the creditors, who are owed money by the company. It’s usually the last resort for businesses that are in serious debt, as it can involve selling major assets like property, equipment, or inventory at below market value prices.

In order to liquidate a business, the owners or shareholders must first declare bankruptcy and file with a court of law. After this happens, an appointed trustee will be designated to oversee the sale of the company’s assets and distribute any proceeds among its creditors. This process can take anywhere from a few months to years, depending on the number and size of assets that need to be sold.

While liquidation is usually seen as a last resort for companies in serious financial trouble, it’s sometimes also used by businesses that are simply looking to get out of unprofitable ventures or no longer want to remain in business. In these cases, the business owners may choose to sell off their most profitable assets like inventory or property, and then close up shop. However, this type of liquidation often comes with negative consequences for the company’s employees and investors.

It’s important to remember that liquidation can affect a variety of parties involved in a company – whether they are creditors, employees, shareholders, or investors. Therefore, it’s important to carefully consider all of the possible outcomes before liquidating your business or entering into a situation where liquidation may be necessary.

Liquidation Examples:

Companies that have recently gone through a liquidation process include Kodak and Borders Books. Both were major players in their respective industries but faced serious financial problems as they struggled to stay competitive in an increasingly digital world. In order to avoid bankruptcy, both companies had to sell off their most valuable assets and close down many of their operations.

Liquidation is an extremely difficult process for any business, particularly those that have been in operation for many years. However, it may be the best option to protect the interests of all parties involved. As such, it’s important to seek legal and financial advice from experienced professionals before making this decision. With the right guidance, businesses can handle liquidation in a way that minimizes negative consequences for employees and other stakeholders.

We provide debt resolution services. Our clients who make all monthly program payments save approximately 40 – 50% of their enrolled debt (average of 43%) upon successful program completion, before program fees. Fees are based on a percentage of your enrolled debt at the time of starting the program and range from 15%-25% of your enrolled debt. Programs range from 20-48 months. Clients must save at least 25% of each debt due to an enrolled creditor before a bona fide settlement offer will be made. On average, clients receive their first settlement within 4-7 months of enrollment and approximately every 3-6 months thereafter from when the prior debt was settled. Not all Clients complete the program. Estimates are based on prior results and may not match your results. We cannot guarantee that your debts will be resolved for a specific amount or percentage or within a specific timeframe. We do not assume your debts, make monthly payments to creditors or provide tax, bankruptcy, accounting, legal advice or credit repair services. Our program is not available in all states; fees may vary by state. Some programs may be offered through The Law Firm of Higbee & Associates d/b/a Advantage Law. The use of debt resolution services will likely adversely affect your credit. You may be subject to collections or lawsuits by creditors or collectors. Your outstanding debt may increase from the accrual of fees and interest. Any amount of debt forgiven by your creditors may be subject to income tax. Clients may withdraw from the program at any time without penalty and receive all funds from their dedicated account, other than funds earned by the company or fees paid to third-party service providers, as may be applicable. Read and understand all program materials prior to enrolling. Certain types of debts are not eligible for enrollment. Some creditors are not eligible for enrollment because they do not negotiate with debt relief companies. To determine the offers you may be eligible for, Americor conducts a “soft credit pull.” This credit pull does not impact your credit score, creditworthiness, or ability to obtain credit from other sources. The soft pull is not a tradeline entry, it does not report against your score and will only take a few minutes.
