Hot Topics Pre - Packs
  • What is a pre pack?
  • The sale of a business and/or assets immediately
    after the appointment of an administrator
  • Negotiations take place prior to administration
    to avoid the costs of trading whilst searching
    for a buyer
  • Are they a new concept?
  • No but volumes have increased since the
    Enterprise Act 2002
  • Topic raised following high profile retail
    pre-packs such as Whittard, US and the Officers

Hot Topics Pre - Packs
  • Why are pre-packs criticised?
  • The business is usually sold with little or no
    open marketing
  • Unsecured creditors are usually not informed
  • What are the benefits?
  • More jobs are saved in 92 of pre-packs ALL
    jobs were saved compared to 65 in a business
  • Continued trade preserves future income for
  • The return to secured creditors is higher on
    average, secured creditors recover 42 of their
    debt through a pre-pack compared to 28 in a
    business sale

Hot Topics Pre - Packs
  • How are creditors protected from any questionable
  • Statement of Insolvency Practice 16 (SIP 16)
    issued 1 Jan 09
  • IPs must keep a detailed record of the reasons
    for pre-pack
  • Creditors should be informed of the details
    relating to the pre-pack sale when first notified
    of the administrators appointment
  • IPs must ensure they only advise directors on
    the companys position not the directors
    personal position

Hot Topics Pre - Packs
  • Our view
  • Pre-packs, when used in the correct way, often
    provide the best outcome for creditors
  • Whilst unsecured creditors may suffer a bad
    debt, they should benefit from future trade as a
    result of business preservation
  • The chances of job preservation are higher
  • Whilst the financial markets remain restricted,
    there are minimal funding opportunities and
    directors are left with limited options

Hot Topics Government CVA Consultation
  • What is a CVA?
  • A formal arrangement with unsecured creditors for
    repayment of debt, usually from profits achieved
    through continued trading
  • It is a rescue procedure that preserves the
    company in its current form
  • How often is the CVA procedure used?
  • JJB Sports is the first retail Plc to enter into
  • Circa 500-600 CVAs are approved each year
    compared to 5,200 administrations and 17,000

Hot Topics Government CVA Consultation
  • Why are CVAs less popular than other procedures?
  • Companies are unable to fund cashflow for
    continued trade
  • Directors have left it too late to seek advice
    and creditors are unwilling to support
  • What is the government seeking to achieve?
  • Offering super priority funding for cashflow
    purposes to companies in CVA or Administration to
    rescue the company
  • Similar to what is offered in the US
  • Extension of the CVA moratorium to medium and
    large sized companies

Hot Topics Government CVA Consultation
  • Our view
  • If implemented correctly, this could be a good
    alternative to administration or liquidation
  • The number of formal insolvencies could
    dramatically reduce
  • The role of the interim manager could become more
  • It may not be acceptable to secured creditors if
    government funding take priority to their lending
  • Unsecured creditors may have concerns if they are
    pushed further down the chain

  • Proven turnaround experience is at a
  • premium
  • Pro-active approach by secured lenders
  • is generating advisory/IM opportunities
  • Directors are willing to use IMs to plug
  • skill gaps to save their business
  • Increased demand by private equity
  • houses for distressed acquisitions
  • MBI opportunities limited in current market

How we can work together
  • We can involve you in any turnaround cases where
    interim management is appropriate
  • We can use our banking contacts to refer
    opportunities to you
  • We can act as a sounding board when you are
    considering solutions for your clients
  • We can offer initial, free advice to your clients
    if a Recovery or Insolvency process is possible
    or to benchmark against the turnaround outcome

Final thought ..
  • The press are talking about a looming Credit
    Crunch Baby Boom being caused by the recession
  • What impact will this have long term on us?
  • More businesses,
  • more problems,
  • more work ..!
