24 & 25 /08/2017 – Singapore Insolvency Conference

The Singapore Law Society invited Geoff Simms from AJCapital as panelist on the master class on cross-border restructuring in Indonesia and Singapore’s role. The discussion centered around challenges of cross border restructurings in Indonesia against the back drop of Singapore’s newly introduced law supplementing and enhancing the laws relating to schemes of arrangement, judicial management and cross border insolvency. This panel discussed whether the new regime will improve creditor rights in Indonesia and how creditors may be able to use the new regime to their advantage including:

  1. Which routes for restructuring have historically existed for offshore lenders to distressed Indonesian borrowers? What additional options will the new restructuring regime create and what might it mean for creditors and debtors?
  2. Will the Singapore regime be successful in improving creditor rights in Indonesia and under the PKPU process?
  3. Historically, Singapore courts have not sought to influence the PKPU process. Will this change under the new regime?
  4. Will Singapore court decisions be accepted and enforceable in Indonesia? What are some practical implications of the new regime for Indonesian counterparties?
  5. How might some recently completed restructurings have occurred differently had the new Singapore regime been in place?
