Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. was a New York  based global financial services firm. Before declaring bankruptcy in 2008, Lehman was the fourth-largest investment bank in the US (behind Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, and Merrill Lynch), doing business in investment banking, equity and fixed-income sales and trading, especially U.S. Treasury securities. Lehman filed for Chapter 11 on September 15, 2008. According to Reuters Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. had reported $639 billion of assets at the time, which makes its bankruptcy roughly six times larger than any other in U.S. history.

Lehman Brothers Holdings plans to distribute around $17.9 billion to creditors, boosting its total payout to roughly $80.4 billion since it left its record bankruptcy, which according to Reuters, helped trigger the global financial crisis. The New York-based bank had failed to win U.S. government aid or attract a buyer. According to Bloomberg News, the payout is scheduled for April 3.
