"What's in a name? Misidentifying the Debtor under Revised Article 9.

This article addresses the harsh penalties imposed on a creditor for incorrectly naming a debtor entity on a financing statement.

As you might expect, misidentifying a debtor on a financing statement can mean the difference between having a secured claim and an unsecured claim. However, what you might not expect is the degree of error necessary to render a financing statement “seriously misleading” under revised Uniform Commercial Code §9-506, thereby rendering it ineffective.

The new legal standard, coupled with strict search logic standards being adopted by filing offices are making it much easier to challenge the perfection of a security interest on the basis of minor errors in the debtor’s name.

So… "What's in a name? Well, when trying to perfect a security interest under Revised Article 9, “that which we call a rose by any other name definitely does not smell as sweet."

INTRO:

[PMSI]
In today’s economy, selling unsecured on open account may carry significant risk for vendors. However, taking a security interest in the merchandise sold may reduce or eliminate such risk. This type of security interest, called a purchase money security interest or "PMSI", is the most common and important secured transaction under article 9. To obtain a valid PMSI, the debtor must first execute a security agreement giving the vendor a security interest in described merchandise. Then, the vendor perfects the security interest by filing a financing statement with the filing office (generally the Secretary of State). The vendor who takes the proper steps to perfect its PMSI is entitled to the cash proceeds from the sale of its merchandise.

[Strong Arm Powers]
Section 544(a)(1) of the Bankruptcy Code gives the trustee in bankruptcy the status of a judicial lien creditor. This allows the trustee the power to avoid any Article 9 security interest that would be subordinate to the rights of such a lien creditor and is commonly referred to as the trustee’s ‘strong-arm’ power. Accordingly, the trustee can avoid a security interest that has not yet been perfected as of the date the bankruptcy petition was filed. Since most security interests are perfected by filing a financing statement, the standards for measuring compliance with the filing requirements are critical when determining whether a security interest can be avoided.

[Revised Article 9 Intro]
In general, the changes introduced by Revised Article 9 will make it more difficult for security interests to be avoided in bankruptcy. Revised Article 9 reduces the types of errors that can render the recordation of a financing statement ineffective. Only errors in the debtor’s name, secured party’s name or indication of the collateral can render the financing statement ineffective. However, financing statements are indexed by the debtor’s name, and the debtor’s name is the essential element to locating the financing statement in the registry. Given the new standards that determine whether a financing statement sufficiently lists the name of the debtor, the degree of error necessary to render a financing statement ineffective because it is “seriously misleading” may be less than what was previously allowed.

[Filing a Financing Statement]
Financing statement registries generally offer an online database that searchers can use to explore financing statements. A search under the debtor’s name might display an alphabetical list with 20 entries, with the exact or nearest match at the top the list. To view additional results, the searcher can utilize “previous” and “next” buttons, which generally appear on the results screen.

[Comparison]
While Revised Article 9 provides clearer rules for determining the correct name to use for a debtor on a financing statement, it also removes human judgment from the determination of when the searching party has satisfied it’s burden. Likewise, it has shifted the burden from the searching party, who used to be required to search under alternative reasonable permutations of the debtor’s name, to the filing party, who is now required to ensure the security interest will be found when a searcher uses the correct name.

Under the OLD ARTICLE 9, as long as a financing statement substantially conformed to the requirements of the statute, minor errors were not misleading. Instead, courts created and relied upon a “reasonably diligent searcher” standard, which allowed the reviewing court to determine whether a hypothetical reasonable search would have resulted in the discovery of the non-conforming financing statement despite the error in a debtor’s name. This “reasonably diligent searcher” standard allowed courts to second-guess what searchers should or should not have discovered in their search.

Under REVISED ARTICLE 9, the reasonably diligent searcher standard is replaced with a bright line standard based on the computerized search logic of the filing office. Here, if a particular security interest cannot be located using the state’s standard search logic, the filing is deemed ‘seriously misleading’. In other words, a financing statement is effective if the computer search run under the debtor’s correct name produces the financing statement with the debtor’s incorrect name. If the financing statement with the debtor’s incorrect name is not produced, then the financing statement is ineffective as a matter of law. Thus, the revised article 9 removes the burdens placed on searchers because searchers no longer have to perform multiple searches using countless variations of the debtor’s name.

[Search Logic]
There is no standard search logic. It is still evolving and some states may adopt unique standards. However, the International Association of Corporation Administrators has promulgated a set of Model Administrative Rules for revised Article 9 that has already been adopted in a few states. The Model Rules are at www.iaca.org and, as of early September, had been adopted in whole or party in Iowa, Minnesota, New Mexico, Virginia and Washington. These rules exemplify how small a margin for error may be provided by the new search logic based test for seriously misleading errors.

[Search Logic Example]
To illustrate, consider the following. For registered organizations such as corporations, the financing statements must list the name of the debtor as it appears in the public records of the jurisdiction state where it is organized. Before names are entered into an index, they are converted into a standardized format. The search logic, as the IACA’s Model Rules suggest, ignores punctuation, accents, capitalization and spaces. Further, suppose “noise words” are also ignored so that the “the” or like words is disregarded. Also, perhaps abbreviations that indicate the nature of the organization, like “Corp.”, “Co.”, or Ltd.”, are ignored. Thus, the presence of these types of errors will not render the statement ineffective. Then the computer conducts a search and produces a result based on exact matches between the search criteria and the database of filings.

If the debtor’s correct name is “The Blakeley & Blakeley Company, the filing system would see the name as blakeleyblakeley. If a secured creditor incorrectly listed the debtor’s name as Blakeley & Blakeley LLC, the system would still see blakeleyblakeley and the error would not be seriously misleading.

However, once the names have been modified by the search logic, the search will produce financing statements only if the names “exactly match”. Thus, even a minor misspelling or a typographical error can be fatal. For example, under the prior law, spelling the debtor’s name as Blakely & Blakely probably would not have rendered the filing ineffective under the “reasonably diligent searcher” test. However, under the Model Rules, such an error would render the security interest unperfected and susceptible to a “strongarm” attack by the bankruptcy trustee.

[Case Example]

The case of In re John’s Bean Farm of Homestead Inc., 378 B.R. 385 (Bankr S.D. Fla 2007) is another good example of how strictly the new requirements are being interpreted. In In re John’s Bean Farm, the court was faced with deciding whether the financing statement filed by the creditor conformed to Florida’s filing requirements or was seriously misleading. The court held that the incorrect name used on the financing statement did, in fact, constitute a seriously misleading financing statement.

In In re John’s Bean Farm, the creditor loaned the debtor money to purchase equipment. The debtor defaulted so the creditor took a security interest in the equipment which was evidenced by a security agreement and a secured promissory note. However, the creditor’s financing statement, as did all of his documents, identified the debtor as “John Bean Farms Inc.” instead of the debtor’s actual name of incorporation, “John Bean Farm of Homesead, Inc.”.

The bankruptcy trustee objected to the claim and argued that the creditor’s misidentification failed to comply with the rule governing the sufficiency of debtor names on financing statement, and therefore, the creditor’s claim was unstructured. The creditor responded by arguing that the financing statement was not seriously misleading and was therefore adequate to perfect his interest in the debtor’s equipment.

The trustee had conducted a search of the Florida Registry’s online financing statement database using the debtor’s correct name and did not find a match on the results screen listing 20 names. However, the creditor’s financing statement was found after clicking the ‘previous’ button 60 times. The creditor attempted to argue that a searcher must go beyond the first page of the search result, however the court disagreed by noting that if the creditor’s view is correct, then ‘search result’ means something other than what the search page displays.

The court found that scrolling through pages of results is exactly what the statute was intended to prevent. While the court stated that the purpose of revised art 9 was “to create a framework for the perfection of security interests that is less arbitrary, that includes statutory guidance of simplifying the search, while allowing or ‘minor’ errors”, it did explain that if it were to interpret revised Article 9 to avoid an absurd result, then a “reasonable limit to the search would be no more than one ‘previous” or “next” screen after the initial search input.

Any error, careless or inadvertent, in naming the correct entity on the financing statement could potentially result in a secured creditor’s claim becoming characterized as an unsecured claim. What, then, practically speaking, is the best practice for a company to reduce this risk? The credit executive selling on a secured basis simply must not only make sure they properly record their financing statement using the debtor’s exact legal name but must also ensure that, given the particular search logic used by the local records office, the filing is easily located. In addition, a vendor must remain vigilant with regard to staying "perfected". A vendor's failure to file an amended UCC-1 financing statement after a debtor corporation has changed its name, for example, could result in that vendor's financing statement being "seriously misleading" – thereby creating a risk that the bankruptcy trustee can unseating the lien. As a result, the secured creditor might not be able to obtain full recovery on the claim if the estate is administratively insolvent.

What's in a Name?

...What’s In A Name? Yan Martel’s award winning novel, “Life of Pi”, is about the life of Piscine Molitor Patel, narrating many of the experiences he encounters that give light to many philosophies and ideologies about life. The protagonist in the story, Piscine Molitor, was named after a Parisian swimming pool, which was described in the story as a breathtaking area to take a good swim. However, Piscine having been fed up with the negative attention his name attracted in school, comes up with a new nickname for himself: Pi. Like many other concepts that Martel uses within the plot as a tool for readers to gain a better understanding on things, the two aforementioned meanings of his name is one of which the utilized. The two names of the protagonist in the story of “Life of Pi” is one of the many tools which Yan Martel uses to embody much more meaning than what meets the eye. The narration of how he acquired the name “Piscine Molitor” is told early on in the novel within the third chapter. This close association to a body of water foreshadows the entire second chapter where he spends in the Pacific Ocean, a much bigger body of water, as a cast-away for 227 days. Moreover, the controlled and confined features of a pool imply the concept of boundaries, (a concept which the author constantly used/ made to appear in the novel), like the boundary that Pi made between him and Richard Parker was an essential tool that kept them both alive and the boundary between fact and...

Maryanna Korwitt took advantage of a recent trend to give babies unusual names (Ferrell 235). She studies names and how they could affect people’s lives. She believes that a child’s personality is determined by the name it is given, and therefore making the right choice is very important.

What's in a Name in "The Harvey Pekar Name Story"

...Joseph Prothro Professor Jett English B1a 16 November 2015 What’s in a Name in “The Harvey Pekar Name Story” Harvey Pekar’s “The Harvey Pekar Name Story” is a comic excerpt from the graphic novel American Splendor, also written by Pekar, which looks into the inner thoughts of a man contemplating his own name, “Harvey Pekar.” As the comic goes, Harvey’s monologue continues to go deeper into why do names matter. Pekar shows this when he writes, “It’s an unusual name – Harvey Pekar… ‘Harvey’ doesn’t really go with ‘Pekar’ — not in the conventional sense at least…” (261). In the end, Harvey comes to the unanswered thought “Who is Harvey Pekar?” (Pekar 264). This all leads to the question, why do we find names important to begin with? What are names? It seems like a simple enough question, but it is actually a very deep and meaningful one. Pekar writes Harvey Pekar in a situation where he thinks out, “What’s in a name? Who is Harvey Pekar?” (264). And in doing this, he brings up the question most people have thought to themselves at on point, “What does my name mean and how does that apply to me?” In the same way that people look into to their ancestry to find connections as to who they are, people do this for their own names as well. People look into the definitions of their names and what that might have to do with their personalities, and they look into how many people might share their name as well and what they might have in common with each other. In their book, A Comics...

What’s in a Name? – Would Whistle-Blowing Be a More Acceptable Practice If It Was Called by Another Name? What Other Names Might It Be Called That Would Find Acceptance in Corporate Culture?

...What’s in a name? – Would whistle-blowing be a more acceptable practice if it was called by another name? What other names might it be called that would find acceptance in corporate culture? Organizations should use a more acceptable name to encourage employees to come forward with concerns or complaints of wrongdoings within the company. Whistle-blowing may be a strong incentive for some individuals. However, often both the whistle-blower and the individual involved in the wrongdoing are treated as suspect. Whether or not the allegations are eventually proven, both the whistle-blower and those accused of wrong doing pay a price. Corporate culture has the responsibility to provide employees with compliance policies that will assist them with programs and policies designed to encourage employees to raise safety concerns. Groups that have recently assumed or are considering assuming these forms of strategies which are commonly referred to as whistleblower policies stand to learn from establishments that have years of knowledge in initiating and refining them. A whistle-blower may innocently come forward with allegations against another, only to face severe scrutiny and charges of disloyalty. Some experts mention that more than 60 percent of whistle-blowers suffered at least one damaging result, for example being pressured to withdraw their charges, being ostracized by coworkers, and even being threatened with a lawsuit. Whistle-blowers can be fired and “blackballed”...

Employee Portfolio

...Employee Portfolio: Management Plan Sharon MGT/311 August 18, 2013 Employee Portfolio: Management Plan Performance in an organization is important to the running of a successful business. Three employees at Riordan Manufacturing were given the Pearson Prentice Hall Self-Assessment to evaluate their skills, abilities, and interests. All three employees scored a 65 when asked how satisfied they are with their job. This low number may indicate that they have a negative genetic predisposition towards life. Not surprisingly, each employee hit the median range of 35 when asked if they were engaged in their job. When a person scores high in this range, it usually means that they are more satisfied with their job and the commitment to their job. Emotions that people experience have an influence on his or her behavior in an organization. In general, people and organizations benefit from positive emotions. Both positive and negative emotions can be contagious. Displaying positive emotions around others can put them in a good mood, while displaying negative emotions around others can put others in a bad mood (Robbins, 2008). Due to scoring on the lower side of being satisfied with their jobs and the median range with their engagement, it is possible that these three employees could represent a negative impact on the performance of the organization. All three employees have a high emotional intelligence which affects self-awareness, self-management, self-motivation, empathy, and...
