Government pre-pack administration announcement, R3 response


Eleanor Temple, chair of insolvency and restructuring trade body R3 in Yorkshire and a barrister at Kings Chambers in Leeds, responds to the Governments announcement that it will bring in new laws requiring pre-pack administration sales to be independently scrutinised

Government pre-pack administration announcement, R3 response


"We welcome efforts to enhance confidence and transparency in pre-packs, but these efforts should be balanced against protecting the valuable role pre-packs play"
Eleanor Temple



“Having agreed that it should be mandatory for sales to connected party purchasers in pre-packs to be referred for an independent opinion, we broadly welcome the Government’s announcement. In particular, the Government’s decision not to ban sales to connected parties in pre-packs is the right one.

 

“Pre-pack administration sales involving connected parties are an important rescue tool as they are often the best way of preserving a business and maximising returns to creditors. The insolvency and restructuring profession is very sensitive to the impact of pre-packs on creditors, and there is a careful balance to strike in these situations between transparency, protecting creditor value, and business rescue, which these proposals support.

 

“We welcome efforts to enhance confidence and transparency in pre-packs, but these efforts should be balanced against protecting the valuable role pre-packs play. These reforms, while not perfect, should help to improve confidence in this important business rescue tool.”
