Law - UK - insolvency.
The restructuring plan is a UK insolvency procedure introduced by the UK's Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020.
The restructuring plan is designed to be a more flexible means of implementing a restructuring for companies facing financial distress.
- Potentially very useful reform
- "The procedure is closely based on the scheme of arrangement, but with some important distinctions.
- Most notable is the inclusion of a cross-class, cram-down mechanism.
- This will allow the court to sanction a plan even if the support of a class has not been obtained, as long as certain conditions are met.
- The restructuring plan has the potential to be a very useful addition to the toolkit, and the first such plan has already been proposed, although there are a number of complex issues that will need to be worked through and tested in practice."
