  (b)  Intended to incur, or believed or reasonably should have believed that he would incur, debts beyond his ability to pay as they became due.

  (10)  The transfer occurred shortly before or shortly after a substantial debt was incurred; and

  (11)  The debtor transferred the essential assets of the business to a lienor who transferred the assets to an insider of the debtor.
