About the Event
As the world begins to recover from the COVID-19 pandemic the tsunami of bankruptcy filings is not at an end. It is more important than ever for credit executives to be proactive in protecting their company’s accounts receivable even before they become due.
As companies have reopened their businesses, trade credit grantors are being asked to extend credit, sometimes with larger dollar exposures. Utilizing the tools available to you can safeguard your company from a bad debt exposure in the future even if your customer files for chapter 11 protection.
Credit grantors will also want to insulate themselves from a potential preference attack in a future Chapter 11 proceeding. This program will discuss how to determine which tool is the best option for your company and how to properly document that choice once you have decided.
Tools that will be discussed are:
· General Security Interests
· Purchase Money Security Interests
· Personal Guaranties
· Cross-Corporate Guaranties
· Letters of Credit
