UK insolvency law.

An order of the court made in relation to a company in financial difficulties with a view to securing its survival as a going concern. Or, failing that, to achieving a more favourable realisation of its assets than would be possible on a liquidation or through a voluntary arrangement.

While the order is in force, the affairs of the company are normally managed by an Administrator.
