Business rescue saves jobs
In May 2013 we were approached by the director of a general building and civil engineering company that was experiencing cash flow problems due to incurring significant bad debts. The company had three ongoing contracts of significant value that were at risk of being terminated if the company entered into Liquidation.
There were also significant retention payments due that would have been more difficult to recover in a Liquidation if the contracts were terminated. The decision was taken to use a pre-pack administration sale to transfer the business and certain assets to the director via a newly formed company on the recommendation of an independent valuer.
The jobs of all 10 staff were safeguarded and the new company was able to continue with the contracts.
It is important to take early advice - whilst all options are still open. The longer matters are left, the less control you will have over the outcome, and the harder it becomes to save a business
