A debtor’s goal in a Chapter 11 Bankruptcy is to confirm a “plan of reorganization,” which permits it to continue in business or liquidate its assets in an orderly manner. Creditors usually have the right to vote for or against a plan, and in many cases, plans are confirmed consensually through affirmative votes by classes of creditors and equity interests.
