Restructuring Environment – Informal Restructuring

Genoa Underwriting Managers, on behalf of Safire Insurance Company Limited, offers a bespoke Professional Indemnity Insurance Policy on a very selective basis for corporate restructuring advisory services provided by an Advisory Firm.

Companies often consider Informal Restructuring as an alternative to Business Rescue. An informal restructuring requires a company to work with some or all of its creditors outside of a formal process in order to come to a negotiated solution where the company can return to financial health. Informal restructurings have been said to have a higher success rate than Business Rescue, primarily because the often negative connotations associated with Business Rescue are avoided in whole or in part.  Due to the informal nature of doing business under an informal restructuring process the level of transparency and accountability creates trust in the process. Additionally, as informal restructurings are usually confidential, (no media or public court system) the company’s reputation and market value, relationships with employees and supplier are preserved.
