Treasury Plus Formula Approach

One of the methods that bankruptcy courts use to set the cramdown interest rate that a plan must provide to an objecting secured creditor. Under the treasury plus formula approach, the court starts with the treasury rate as a base rate and then adjusts that rate upward by assessing the risk associated with the facts of the case. The risk premium is determined by reference to such factors as the debtor’s credit history, the nature of the collateral, the length of repayment, and the viability of the reorganization plan.
