If a company is facing financial difficulties, it may become necessary to liquidate its assets. These liquidated assets can then be distributed amongst creditors and shareholders. This way, all is not lost, and at least some money can be shared amongst those involved.

This process is also known as ‘winding up’. Although it can be initiated by the main shareholders of a company, it can also be ordered by a court. This typically happens if the company is unable to pay its debts, or if the company directors are conducting themselves in an unethical manner.
