How does this all work and what are the sources for all this data?

We import into our database case information for all companies that file bankruptcy in the 94 U.S. Bankruptcy Courts every night. We have been following this same process since 2000,, building a database of more than 500,000 bankrupt companies to support our subscribers in various capacities.

Additionally, we "track" and write news about every public company currently operating under Chapter 11 protection. This process allows us to continue collecting information about the public company bankruptcy, including the following: plans of reorganization and disclosure statements, debtor-in-possession financing information, professional retention data, 363 sales motions, key employee incentive plans, monthly operating reports, claim transfer activity, securities and security pricing data, committee information and much more.

Our platform allows subscribers to flush out extensive details about individual bankruptcies, identify a group of companies that meet a specific criteria or allow our subscribers to stay on top of the industry in general.

BankruptcyData has reinvigorated how professionals interested in the bankruptcy sector consume, share, manage and leverage vital data, research and analysis. We provide a competitive advantage to those interested in making more informed decisions regarding the bankruptcy and distressed sectors.
