On August 30, 2019, RAIT Funding, LLC (f/k/a Taberna Funding LLC), along with six of its affiliates, filed a petition for relief under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code in the Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware (Lead Case No. 19-11915). According to the accompanying Declaration, the Debtors’ core business is commercial real estate lending. During the period from 2008-2018, the Debtors incurred approximately $1.468 billion in losses as a result of mortgage write-offs, asset write-downs, and losses on the sale of assets. After an earlier, unsuccessful sale process, the Debtors ultimately agreed to a stalking horse purchase agreement with Fortress Credit Advisors LLC on August 30, 2019.

The Debtors presently report assets valued at between $100-500 million and liabilities in the same range. Funds are expected to be available for distribution to unsecured creditors. The cases have been assigned to the Honorable Brendan L. Shannon.
