Instead of opening their factory in the old General Motors plant in Delaware, the plug-in hybrid automaker, Fisker, found itself in bankruptcy in November and things are moving at a rapid pace.
Creditors will have until December 30th to vote on the bankruptcy plan for Fisker and the final confirmation hearing will take place on January 3rd.
Fisker has thousands of investors, many unsecured creditors, and a committee has been selected to represent those creditors. Between them, there could be about $725,000 to divvy up.
The state of Delaware is one of the secured creditors that has received collateral from Fisker.
Last month, Hybrid Technologies, LLC bought the $168 million loan from the federal government to Fisker, at a heavy discount.
The reason the bankruptcy is being fast tracked, according to one of Fisker's attorneys, is in an attempt to retain as much of the company's value as possible.
