These three processes not only operate through different procedures but they are also attuned to the pursuit of different objectives and values, they are subject to different controls and they involve different roles for, and relationships between, the parties affected by corporate rescues.
Three connected processes make up the UK corporate rescue regime: the formal, legal regime, informal approaches and the quasi-formal system, as exemplified by the pre-packaged administration.

With effect from September 15, 2003, the Enterprise Act made significant changes to the governance of corporate rescue procedures in the United Kingdom which involved a shift away from a “concentrated creditor” model of governance towards a “dispersed creditor” model of governance which vests greater control rights in unsecured creditors collectively.

On 26 January 2012, however, the then Business, Innovation and Skills Minister, Edward Davey, announced that he would adhere to the Government's moratorium on regulations affecting micro-business and would, therefore, ‘not be seeking to introduce new legislative controls on pre-packs at this time’– see See Explanatory Notes to the Enterprise Act 2002 which state that ‘rescuing the company as a going concern’ is intended to mean ‘the company and as much of its business as possible’ (para 647).The courts may come onto the scene if, for example, an action is brought for wrongful trading under s 214 of the Insolvency Act if the company subsequently ends up in liquidation.IA 1986, s 214 provides for potential personal liability on the director's part where there is trading or other activity and, at some time before a winding up that ‘person knew or ought to have concluded’ that there was no reasonable prospect that the company would avoid going into insolvent liquidation: see further Finch, above n 4, pp 698–699.

An understanding of the tensions between these three systems and an awareness of the challenges posed by transition through different procedures does, however, help to explain many of the deficiencies of current corporate rescue processes and it also provides an enhanced basis for considering current proposals for reforming restructuring and working towards an improved rescue regime. A number of negative and identifiable consequences flow from such divergences.A respectful treatment of one another is important to us.Therefore we would like to draw your attention to our House Rules.The substantive decisions and commercial judgments of administrators, are, however, not tightly constrained by the judiciary since the courts have largely deferred to the professional expertise and judgment of the appointee – see eg See further V Finch ‘Corporate rescue: who is interested? Banks with ‘qualifying floating charges’ are able to use the streamlined out of court appointment procedure in all cases, not merely in situations of urgency, and they are able to determine who should be appointed to the post of administrator (IA 1986, Sch B1, paras 14(1) and 18(3)).This gives the banks the power to insert their chosen administrator with speed and without regard to the other creditors or the courts – see As in the US Ch 11 reconstruction procedure which purports to leave the pre-insolvency directors of the company in control.To send this article to your Kindle, first ensure [email protected] added to your Approved Personal Document E-mail List under your Personal Document Settings on the Manage Your Content and Devices page of your Amazon account.
