US Bankruptcies to Rise 45% in 2009

    CNNMoney.com reports credit insurer Euler Hermes ACI forecasts a 45% increase in bankruptcy filings in 2009. Banks are in danger as US business bankruptcies may be up sharply.

 

    The FDIC reports year over year charge-offs to commercial and industrial borrowers are up by $4.2 billion as of the end of the first quarter. Credit rating agency DBRS states "business bankruptcies surpassed the peak levels of the previous cycle last year, and there is little to suggest that business bankruptcies have reached their peak."
