The Indices Also Highlight Stable Distress Generally and in Real Estate

We are pleased to announce the release of the Polsinelli-TrBK Distress Indices Report for the third quarter of 2018. Polsinelli, with data provided exclusively by TrollerBk.com, publishes the Indices Report on a quarterly basis.

The third quarter report details the rise of hospitals filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and how that has shaped U.S. economic distress in the third quarter of 2018.

The report also explains how health care is decoupled from the general U.S. economy. As the economy – specifically Chapter 11 bankruptcies and the real estate industry – show relatively stable distress levels over the last several quarters, health care has shown consistently high levels of distress; eight of the past 11 quarters have registered a jump in the industry’s economic distress.

The Polsinelli-TrBK Distress Indices track the increase or decrease in all Chapter 11 filings with more than $1 million in assets since the fourth quarter of 2010. Unlike the public markets, the Polsinelli-TrBK Distress Indices include both public and private companies, creating a broader economic view and one that may show developing trends on Main Street before they appear on Wall Street.
