Cramdown

the confirmation of a plan of reorganization by a Bankruptcy court, even though one or more classes of creditors or equity interest holders has objected to the plan. The confirmed plan will bind all classes of creditors and equity interest holders, even those who voted against the plan. Hence the descriptive phrase — the plan proponent “crams down” on dissenters. A cramdown is a key tool for debtors and a major reason that some companies restructure in Bankruptcy, rather than out of court. Governed by §1129(b) of the Bankruptcy Code.
