“Business Rescue, as defined by the Companies Act 2008, aims to facilitate the rehabilitation of a company that is "financially distressed" by providing for: the temporary supervision of the company and management of its affairs, business and property by a business rescue practitioner, a temporary moratorium ("stay") on the rights of claimants against the company 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."
The Business Practitioner is required to reduce the debt burden in order to enable the company to continue trading. They are required to investigate the company’s affairs, business, property and financial situation, and thereafter consider whether there is any reasonable prospect of rescuing the company.
A Business Rescue Plan must be drawn up by the practitioner and will then be put to a vote by the creditors. Once successfully voted in, the Business Rescue Practitioner must implement and oversee the business rescue plan in an attempt to save the company.
