 Who gets to control the company: Creditors or shareholders?In a bankruptcy creditors are given priority over equity holders. But before the bankruptcy, conflicts of interest and problematic incentive situations arise as different constituencies renegotiate terms of financing. New EU and national regulation is being introduced for pre-insolvency situations that can affect the negotiating balance between creditors and shareholders.
