An administration procedure is normally used in circumstances where there exists a sound underlying business that could be rescued through restructuring, or, sold in order to produce a better result for creditors than in a liquidation. In addition to providing legal protection, whereby creditors can only take action against the company with leave of the Court, an administration must satisfy one or more of the following statutory objectives:
Administrations are often used where there are the following concerns:
Administrations are often carried out in conjunction with a “Pre-Pack” sale. This will involve negotiations for the sale of the company’s business and assets prior to administration. The sale of the assets is then completed immediately upon commencement of the administration.
At Turpin Barker Armstrong we follow all best practice requirements and ensure complete transparency so all stakeholders can understand the process undertaken.
An administrator can be appointed not only by the directors and the company but also by creditors and holders of a qualifying floating charge.
An exit route is determined in the early stages of the administration but this can include returning the company to the directors, a sale of the business and assets as a going concern or exiting via a company voluntary arrangement.
