Debtor in Possession

A debtor in possession, or DIP, is a company undergoing a Chapter 11 bankruptcy reorganization. In Chapter 11 bankruptcy, the debtor remains in possession of its assets and continues normal business operations while reorganizing debt obligations and repayment plans. This is in contrast to a Chapter 7 liquidation, in which the debtor’s assets are sold to pay off debts and the bankrupt company ceases operations. In some cases, debtor-in-possession may refer to a legally appointed trustee, someone other than the actual company that is in bankruptcy, who oversees the assets during the reorganization.
