Absolute priority

When a company goes bankrupt or shuts down into liquidation, absolute priority simply implies who has the head of the line privilege to receive payments. This pertains to creditors or shareholders. For instance, when company ABCD goes into bankruptcy and its assets are liquidated, creditors are paid first and the shareholders are the ones who gets whatever is left, if there is at all.
