Oregon Corporation has filed a voluntary petition to reorganize under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Reform Act. Its creditors are considered an attempt to force liquidation. The company currently holds cash of $6,000 and accounts receivable of $25,000. In addition, the company owns four plots of land. The first two (labeled A and B) cost $8,000 each. Plots C and D cost the company $20,000 and $25,000, respectively. A mortgage lien is attached to each parcel of land as security for four different notes payable of $15,000 each. Presently, the land can be sold for the following:
Plot A – $16,000
Plot B – $11,000
Plot C – $14,000
Plot D – $27,000
Another $25,000 note payable is unsecured. Accounts payable at this time total $32,000. Of this amount, $12,000 is salary owed to the company’s workers. No employee is due more than $3,400.
The company expects to collect $12,000 from the accounts receivable if liquidation becomes necessary. Administrative expenses required for liquidation are anticipated to be $16,000.
