ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 16, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Timeshares Direct, Inc., d/b/a Timeshares By Owner, today announced that in an effort to address certain short-term operational and liquidity challenges, it filed a voluntary petition to reorganize under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida (the "Court"). The Company's operations are expected to continue as normal throughout the Chapter 11 process while it develops a reorganization plan to resolve its temporary operational and liquidity issues.

"Over the past year, Timeshares Direct has faced a number of significant challenges" representatives of the company have stated. "After careful consideration of all available alternatives, the Company's Board of Directors determined that a Chapter 11 reorganization filing was a necessary and prudent step and the best way to maintain regular operations and allow for a successful restructuring. We expect to emerge from this restructuring a stronger, more competitive company that is well positioned for growth. "

We want to stress a few important points:

The Company has asked the Court for additional authorizations, including permission to continue paying employee wages and salaries, to provide employee benefits without interruption, and to continue with its various customer programs.

During the Chapter 11 process, clients should expect to be receive the same exemplary services and vendors should expect to be paid for post-petition purchases of goods and services in the ordinary course of business.

"On behalf of the entire management team, we would like to thank our customers and vendors for their continued support during this process. We also want to recognize our dedicated employees, whose continued support and commitment are crucial to the future success of our company.
