The Better Alternative

Are you staring down the barrel of insolvency and liquidation?  Business Rescue may be a better alternative….
A distressed entity that in the ensuing six months is unlikely to be able to pay all its debts as they fall due and payable, or if it appears likely that the Company will become insolvent, is a candidate for business rescue.  
Business rescue presents South African companies in financial distress with a second chance; the possibility of continuing to trade, of avoiding job losses and the significant knock-on effect on the South African economy.  While not possible in all circumstances, a successful business rescue will always be preferable to a liquidation process – for all stakeholders.


What is Business Rescue?

Business rescue proceedings are formal legislated proceedings, under Chapter 6 of the South African Companies Act 71 of 2008 (“The Companies Act”), that are aimed at restructuring the affairs of a company in such a way that either maximises the likelihood of the company continuing in existence on a solvent basis, or results in a better return for the creditors of the company than would ordinarily result from the liquidation of the company.  It provides for the temporary supervision of the company by a business rescue practitioner; a stay on the rights of claimants against the company which arose prior to business rescue or in respect of property in its possession; and the development and implementation, if approved, of a business rescue plan to rescue the company by restructuring its business, property, debt, affairs, other liabilities and equity.
