solvent
The term is applied to a range of corporate issues. A company in liquidation is not solvent unless the directors can declare that it can pay all creditors within twelve months. A company is commonly assumed to be solvent if the value of the company's assets is more than its liabilities, taking account of contingent and future claims or that it will generate sufficient surplus revenue from its operations to make up the deficit.
