Examples of cases in which undistributed funds might fall through the cracks of §347(b) include, but are certainly not limited to, (1) liquidating chapter 11 cases that do not involve a single entity that purchased substantially all of the debtor's assets, (2) liquidating chapter 11 cases that sell substantially all of the debtor's assets to one entity that itself is not in existence or in a position to accept the unclaimed funds five years from the date of the confirmation order, (3) liquidating chapter 11 cases in which the party entitled to a distribution rejects the distribution due to it because, , it has determined that it is not cost-effective to locate and make distribution to the parties beneficially entitled thereto, and (4) liquidating chapter 11 cases in which the debtor entity has been legally extinguished and the funds remaining on hand five years from the date of the confirmation order are the proceeds of litigation claims (and not the proceeds from the sale of the debtor's assets). These sections are designed to achieve finality, judicial economy and the avoidance of disruptive wasteful litigation over funds that remain unclaimed five years after confirmation. The funds remained in the court registry until the court determined disposition). Generally, chapter 11 funds deposited in a court registry are commingled with chapter 7 and 13 unclaimed funds. Additionally, in one instance, a court ordered that a substantial amount of undistributed funds held in its court registry from a reorganization were subject to forfeiture to the federal government.Voluntary Liquidation is a when a company takes it upon themselves to use an Insolvency Practitioner to start Liquidating their company.If you are a director of a limited company you, and any partners or shareholders, can opt to liquidate your company when things are getting difficult.WMI LIQUIDATING TRUST AGREEMENT, dated as of March 6, 2012 (this "Trust Agreement"), is by and among Washington Mutual, Inc.
