During the Great Recession, several companies went bankrupt. These included General Motors, CIT Group and Lehman Brothers, many of which were bailed out, restructured, or acquired.
The question asks: Out of the 25 largest U.S companies by revenue, how many will file for bankruptcy over the next four years?
For the purposes of this question, the 2019 Fortune 500 list will be used. The next four years will be defined as the interval between 00:00 UTC 15 March 2020 and 00:00 UTC 15 March 2024.
