Private company entering voluntary administration

Key services:
  • Restructuring and turnaround
The matter

Aston Chace Group was appointment as voluntary administrators of a distressed transport and logistics business that was a key supplier to an ASX listed company. This required the management of stakeholders including major financial institutions and fuelling providers by restructuring the company’s operations so the business could continue to trade.

The solution

The company’s affairs were successfully restructured and entered into a Deed of Company Arrangement (DoCA) that saw control of the company returned to a director. The DoCA resulted in improved cash flow and enhanced profitability.

The outcome

Aston Chace Group’s involvement prevented enforcement action being taken by the company’s secured creditors and will result in creditors receiving a more favourable return than in a liquidation scenario. All staff were retained during this transition period.
