What is the definition of "workout"?
Workout is a management term associated with a new financial and operating structure for a business that is in extreme operating difficulty, and where the alternative to a workout is bankruptcy. In the case of real estate, a workout is designed to prevent foreclosure.
Most often, a workout is designed and partially managed by an outside entity that is engaged by the business, or its investors and/or creditors.
