Definition of Workout
Workout is a negotiated agreement between the debtors and its creditors outside the bankruptcy process.
In a workout situation, creditors grant concessions to the company in order to minimize their losses. For example, taking 75 cents on the dollar may be a better alternative than watching the company dissolve in a Chapter 7 liquidation and getting nothing at all.
