I'm a part owner of a corporation. The corporation has decided to liquidate it's assets (mostly real estate), and voluntarily shut down. The company has two pensions on its books. The pensions are unfunded and unsecured. and for a fixed amount per month for a fixed number of years. Both pensions have several years remaining. One of the pension holders is a 25% stockholder and officer who voluntarily participated in the decision to liquidate. Are the pension holders entitled to the future amounts due out of the liquidation proceeds, or are the amounts lost as the business is shutting down.
Liquidating assets involves the selling of assets such as inventory, equipment, or real estate, typically when a business is closing.
There are different types of debt, but all involve one person (the debtor) owing money to another (the creditor). Terms of repayment are governed by a contract.
