UCLA-LoPucki Bankruptcy Research Database

The UCLA-LoPucki Bankruptcy Research Database (BRD) is a data collection, data linking, and data dissemination project of the UCLA School of Law. The BRD contains data on all of the more than 1000 large public companies that have filed bankruptcy cases since October 1, 1979. Coverage includes cases filed under Chapter 7 and Chapter 11, whether filed by the debtors or creditors. Here BRD has defined company "public" if it has filed an Annual Report (form 10-K or form 10) with the Securities and Exchange Commission for a year ending not less than three years prior to the filing of the bankruptcy case. And company "large" if that Annual Report reported assets worth $100 million or more, measured in 1980 dollars (about $287 million in current dollars)
