On Tuesday, February 19, 2013, the $2.4 billion Revel resort in Atlantic City announced that it plans to file for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protection in March. The Associated Press reported that the Chapter 11 Bankruptcy “will wipe away about two-thirds of its $1.5 billion in debt by converting more than $1 billion of it into equity for lenders.”
