10 Turnarounds & Workouts

September 2015

Special Report
Retailer Creditor Recoveries
The following charts summarize key findings regarding recoveries by general unsecured creditors in bankruptcy cases filed by large
retailers, grocery stores and restaurant chains. The data regarding creditor recoveries was generated from an analysis of estimates
provided by debtors in disclosure statements filed between January 1, 2012 and September 10, 2015. Some of the cases covered in
our study were filed as early as 2001, but most were also filed in the 2012-2015 timeframe. In collecting the data for this study, only
the last-filed disclosure statement was used for cases in which multiple versions of the disclosure statement were filed. Additionally,
disclosure statements which did not provide an estimate of the percentage recovery for general unsecured creditors were excluded
in charting recovery estimates. No attempt was made to independently estimate recoveries in such cases. The charts represent only
the plan proponents estimates of recoveries which may differ from actual recoveries
received by creditors in such cases. To view a list of the bankruptcy cases examined
in preparing this data, please visit https://www.chapter11dockets.com/about/cases.
