Abstract: This data collection gathered information on select large, publicly held companies that filed for bankruptcy during 1979-1988. The goal of the study was to identify patterns in the filing, processing, and distributions of bankruptcy reorganization in large, publicly held companies. Data were collected on the companies' income, assets, sales, trading, value of stocks and notes, equity, claims, debt filing, mode of bankruptcy filing, secured and unsecured claims, distribution to unsecured creditors and equity holders, and liquidation. Data are also provided on the name of the debtor company, place, date, and day of bankruptcy filing, and the number of persons employed by the company before and after filing for bankruptcy. Additional information is provided on changes at the chief executive officer (CEO) level before, during, and after bankruptcy, and on the CEO's exit salary.
