Rescuing companies in financial distress is now more than ever before not just a possibility but also a reality with the introduction of Business Rescue in terms of Chapter 6 of the New Companies Act.
Business Rescue has created a mechanism for South African companies which are financially distressed or even trading in insolvent circumstances to reorganise and restructure their businesses to alleviate the distressed state of affairs in order to secure the future of its existence. Business Rescue is not without its effects on the employees, creditors, shareholders, financial institutions and the local, national and international economy.
