Definition for : Bankruptcy
A bankruptcy is triggered when a company can no longer meet its short-term commitments and thus faces a liquidity crisis. Bankruptcy happens because a company does not make enough profits, and not because of significant debts. Nevertheless, the exact definition of Financial distress leading to filing for bankruptcy differs from one jurisdiction to another.
