Contingency planning and insolvency


Contingency Planning and Insolvency

Identifying and presenting available options to directors, shareholders and different classes of lender when faced with financial distress and crisis.

Contingency planning and insolvency challenges

When a company is in financial distress, they often need a ‘plan B’ in place to protect value for all stakeholders. While the causes of financial distress may differ, experience has shown the benefits of appropriate contingency planning in terms of value preservation.

Contingency planning has become even more important today with more complex capital structures and volatile financial markets. A well-designed contingency plan identifies the drivers, relative costs, and benefits between a consensual solution and an enforcement-based strategy.
