What is a Chapter 7 Bankruptcy?

It’s the most common and simplest form of bankruptcy that an individual or company can file. Any assets that the debtor does not have exempted a court appointed trustee may sell and then distribute the net proceeds to creditors. In exchange for this the debtor gets released of his personal liability for most debts. In most cases the case gets closed by the trustee without selling any of the debtors assets

According to DMGT it will have no liability for the legal costs it incurred with Xceligent.
