Restructuring Environment – Interim Managerial Appointments

Genoa Underwriting Managers, on behalf of Safire Insurance Company Limited, offers a bespoke Professional Indemnity Insurance Policy for Interim Managers.

When a resolution to commence business rescue is not adopted by the board of directors, an affected person (shareholder, creditor, employee, trade union etc.) may apply to Court to place a company in business rescue. After considering such an application, a court can order the company to be placed in business rescue if there are reasonable prospects of rescuing the company.

Courts are also able to order other relief in addition to the relief prayed for by the affected person, hence, the court may order the appointment of an interim practitioner (“Interim Manager”) who has been nominated by the affected person subject to creditors ratifying (approving) his appointment at a first creditors’ meeting.
