LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, June 21, 2022 / -- An anticipated surge of pandemic-induced Chapter 11 cases failed to materialize in 2021, thwarting corporate restructuring professionals’ predictions. Government stimulus programs, combined with low borrowing rates and greater debt forbearance, disrupted early forecasts that a wave of corporate bankruptcies would wash over at some point during the year.

Charles W. Daff believes that although mass bankruptcy in the corporate center failed to materialize, corporations are still preparing for eventual financial issues. "Nevertheless, bankruptcy firms and related professionals are preparing their staff for the eventual economic downturn," states Daff. "The larger law firms are hiring senior attorneys and associates for their chapter 11 practice."

Instead, 2021 saw the fewest annual bankruptcy filings in nearly four decades, falling 24% from 2020, which had recorded the fewest bankruptcies since 1986. A total of 3,596 Chapter 11 cases were filed in 2021, about 3,000 fewer than the year before. Some sectors, such as retail and health care remain vulnerable as the pandemic continues to take its toll, supply chain issues persist, and inflation rises, bankruptcy and turnaround practitioners say.

Daff continues, "On June 7, 2022, the House passed a bill raising the debt limit for chapter 11 sub-chapter V case to $7.5 million and in the same bill, the debt limit for small businesses and consumers increased in chapter 13 to $2.5 million. The bill is waiting for the President's signature."

But expectations of when the bottom will drop out are tempered following a year of relatively low bankruptcies that threw the restructuring world for a loop.

"The tsunami of bankruptcy cases has not registered on the radar to date while all the indicators predict it is just over the financial horizon. Like so many storms you never can predict the date it will get here," concludes Daff.
