Corporate Restructuring

Enquire now

introduction

Companies periodically assess and deliberate ways to improve their financial results, and one way of achieving this may be through a successful corporate restructuring exercise, undertaken pursuant to the applicable laws.

A corporate restructuring exercise may involve the acquisition, disposal, consolidation or amalgamation of assets or shares. Other reasons that may compel a company to restructure may be to prepare the company for a sale, merger or management buyout. In almost all cases, legal and financial reasons will dictate the approach and outcome.

By leveraging on our corporate and insolvency law practices within the firm, we aim to help clients achieve their restructuring objectives by offering strategic advance planning, assessing the possible business outcomes and legal restrictions, and managing the interests of the stakeholders involved, namely the shareholders, creditors, customers, and employees.

Our work includes:

  • Restructuring and hiving-off of businesses for strategic reasons
  • Advising clients on employment-related issue
  • Redomiciliation of overseas companies to Singapore
  • Restructuring companies ahead of IPO
  • Use of schemes of arrangement and other court processes
  • Debt restructurings
  • Capital reductions to allow return of value to shareholders or to create distributable reserves
  • Acting for companies in financial difficulties and advising their directors
  • Privatisations of listed companies

The team works closely with other advisers (and, where relevant, our colleagues who handle court processes) to develop innovative ideas and practical solutions for our clients.
