Insolvent

An entity is considered to be insolvent when the amount of its liabilities exceeds the market value of its assets. Insolvency is also considered to have occurred when a person or business is unable to pay obligations when due. This condition may be caused by poor cash planning, poor management, or an unexpected financial loss. A likely outcome of insolvency is negotiations with creditors to reduce or defer payments, or bankruptcy.
