The CEO, Meredith Madden, of NORDAM, believed filing bankruptcy was not the route they originally desired, but what the company desperately needed—as it preserved NORDAM Group's operations without disruption. The company says the bankruptcy filing comes subsequent to a protracted contract dispute with Pratt & Whitney Canada over engine nacelles for the Gulfstream G500 and G600.

The National Association of Consumer Bankruptcy Attorneys (NACBA) has developed a Principal Pay Down Plan, which would provide immediate relief for qualified homeowners who find themselves underwater on their mortgages. Economists and other experts all agree that housing must stabilize before we have a full blown economic recovery. The Principal Pay Down plan proposes to reduce the interest rate on mortgages to 0% for 5 years, monthly payments would be lowered and every dollar applied to the principal. This Plan provides multiple benefits. It would help families trying to save their homes, stabilize communities, and help prop up the ever declining housing market.
