The Prepack Concept

A pre pack administration is one of the most recent innovations in UK insolvency. The pre pack concept was developed to help try to maximise the value of a business sale when continuity is necessary for clients and to also try to ensure that a degree of "goodwill" is retained as a business asset.

Pre Pack Administration Advantages:

Pre Pack Administration Advantages
Existing directors - providing they can find the necessary funding to buy back the business assets - retain a degree of control during the pre pack administration process.

Pre Pack Administration Advantages
The old business "phoenixes" into the new company to provide customers with continuity of operation and maintenance of business value.

Pre Pack Administration Advantages
Key employees have certainty of employment continuity.

Pre Pack Administration Advantages
Key suppliers may be retained for the benefit of the business. Although certain agreements would have to be renegotiated as the original company will cease to be legally liable upon liquidation.

Pre Pack Administration Advantages
The actual pre pack transaction is very quick because the due diligence is carried out prior to the marketplace becoming aware of business problems.

Pre Pack Administration Advantages
The new company does not carry the burden of significant debts or property or lease obligations it can no longer afford and which were dragging the old business under.

Insolvency Practice

Pre Pack Administration Process

    • 1. Insolvent Business

      The directors of the failing business must recognise that the business is insolvent and call in an insolvency practitioner to provide advice on all the options available.

    • 2. Insolvency Practitioner

      In the event that a pre pack administration is financially, legally and ethically the best way forward then the insolvency practitioner, upon appointment, will commence marketing of the business in a way which tries not to compromise the future viability of the new trading company.

    • 3. Existing Directors

      If the current directors wish to purchase the old business then they will need to set up a new company vehicle to allow the administrator to sell the pre pack business into. The old directors will also need to have all of their funding in place to purchase the company.

    • 4. The Old Company

      The old company should then formally enter into administration and an insolvency practitioner appointed to oversee all of the pre pack arrangements.

      All formal independent business valuations are now undertaken and recorded.

    • 5. The Sale

      A sale agreement will be drawn up by the administrator and, upon signature; the company assets will be sold to the new purchaser and transferred into the new company vehicle.

    • 6. Meeting of Creditors

      The administrator will then call a meeting of creditors to explain the sale of the business and provide justification as to why the pre pack administration was the best insolvency option.

    • 7. Liquidation

      The old company is then usually liquidated and the assets (mainly sale proceeds from the pre pack) will be distributed according to the prescribed legal terms.
