As noted earlier, just the debtor may file an idea of reorganization through the very first 120-day period after the petition is filed (or after entry regarding the purchase for relief, if an involuntary petition had been filed). The court may give extension of the period that is exclusive to 1 . 5 years following the petition date. In addition, the debtor has 180 times following the petition date or entry for the order for relief to acquire acceptances of its plan. 11 U.S.C. В§ 1121. The court may expand (up to 20 months) or reduce this acceptance period that is exclusive cause. 11 U.S.C. В§ 1121(d). In practice, debtors typically look for extensions of both the master plan filing and plan acceptance deadlines during the exact same time making sure that any purchase tried through the court permits the debtor 2 months to get acceptances after filing an idea before any competing plan could be filed.
