transfers made during the Preference Period (i) to a creditor; (ii) on account of an antecedent debt owed by the transferor before the transfer is made; (iii) while the transferor was insolvent; and (iv) that enable the creditor to receive more than it would have received in a Chapter 7 liquidation case under the Bankruptcy Code. Preferential transfers are subject to Clawback, but creditors may avail themselves of certain defenses to a Clawback action such as the “ordinary course of business defense” and the “new value defense.” One rationale behind Preference rules is that they prevent creditors from making a mad grab for assets when they learn that the debtor is becoming insolvent and prevent debtors from favoring some creditors over others as Bankruptcy nears. See Clawback.
