The flagship Singapore Insolvency Conference 2017 builds on the success of the past 5 annual National and Regional Insolvency Conferences. This year’s conference will adopt a format that allows for a more interactive and personal learning experience and a greater exchange of ideas.

Year 2017 is turning out to be an exceptionally busy time for restructuring and insolvency professionals. For one, the shipping, oil and marine sector has remained weak and there are an increasing number of affected businesses entering into restructuring processes in the past year. There are also more bond defaults involving both retail and institutional investors and the present round has brought about interesting and difficult dynamics not seen in previous economic down turns. Turnarounds require resources, and there is an increase need for distress and new monies financing given the need for working capital for the distressed companies during their restructuring. Further, there is the increase need for restructuring to have regard to laws and practices in multiple jurisdictions (e.g. China and Indonesia) given the presence of creditors and assets of companies in multiple jurisdictions. The laws of various jurisdictions including the use of Chapter 11 and Chapter 15 proceeding in the United States coupled with Singapore legal processes to facilitate cross border restructuring may well help provide solutions. Singapore’s newly introduced law supplementing and enhancing the laws relating to schemes of arrangement, judicial management and cross border insolvency carry much promise and certainly afford a lot more tools to facilitate restructuring in and outside Singapore in these trying times.

On the backdrop of these issues, Singapore Insolvency Conference 2017 is going to be the forum where many latest cutting edge views would be exchanged and shared. The forum will open with a session covering the latest development in Singapore law concerning restructuring and insolvency and tools available to effect restructuring in and outside of Singapore. Also, making a comeback is the marquee event of previous conferences, i.e. the Judicial Colloquium where we expect to have judges attending from multiple jurisdictions and sharing their thoughts on various issues and offering a rare insight into the judicial mind.

A new feature will be master classes relating to:-

  • Cross-border restructuring in Indonesia and Singapore’s role;
  • Cross-border restructuring in China and Singapore’s role;
  • Restructuring of bond debt;
  • Restructuring and insolvency in the offshore oil & gas and marine sector.
  • Chapter 11 and Chapter 15 proceedings and Singapore’s approach towards recognition of foreign insolvency proceedings;
  • Alternative capital providers/distressed investors in restructuring situations with a focus on the role, opportunities and challenges/issues faced by distressed investors;

Singapore Insolvency Conference 2017 is expected to be a blast and we hope to see everyone there!
