Not quite.

The point of debtor-in- possession loans is to continue operations. The bankruptcy could, potentially, halt all operations without it. Most companies (suppliers, distributors, retailers) wold not enter into contract without the financing, which must be judicially approved as a priority loan of precedence above other creditor interests.
