Solyndra Bankruptcy Makes Headlines, Again

By Christopher Lee March 21, 2012 | Posted in

solyndra bankruptcySince Solyndra filed for bankruptcy in 2011, many issues have surfaced about the company’s operations and managing of finances. Many people balked at the filing after learning the solar company had received a $500 million government bailout just two years prior. Further issues spark controversy as company executives began pushing to receive their bonuses as once promised, a  move not commonly found in corporate restructuring cases.

Making Waves

This week, the U.S. Bankruptcy Judge presiding over Solyndra’s case granted the company approval to pay corporate bonuses. Solyndra may being paying a few eligible employees up to $30,000 a piece, for a total of $368,500 in bonuses. Nearly 20 company executives are in the running to be paid if they successfully meet preset performance milestones during the remaining bankruptcy case.

Many objections were heard in court regarding corporate bonuses, stating a company in the middle of liquidating assets has no business paying employees extra money for their work. The judge overruled these objections under the idea that giving bonuses to current employees for increased performance would be more cost effective than hiring new individuals to help manage the remaining operations in bankruptcy.

Everybody I have encountered and meet with at Lee Law Firm has been positive and encouraging. And that is exactly what I needed because nobody looks forward to going through bankruptcy. The staff was honest about my situation and put my mind at ease about the process, and for the first time in months I was able to relax and focus…

on getting out of my financial situation with hope of starting over. I would recommend Lee Law firm of friends and family because I feel like they have my best interest at heart.
