Debtor-in-Possession (DIP)


What is DIP Financing?

Debtor-in-Possession (commonly referred to as “DIP”) Financing is essentially financing provided to companies who have filed for bankruptcy protection and reorganization under Chapter 11 of the United States Code.  DIP Financing is provided on a post-petition basis — after the filing date of the company’s bankruptcy.

Northwind Financial is one of only a few funding sources in the United States actively pursuing these arrangements.
