03.02.14 The Companies Bill 2012

The Companies Bill 2012 is currently passing through the Dáil and when passed it will have a very significant effect on Company Law in Ireland. In particular the duties and obligations of Company Directors are clearly set out and expanded upon in the Bill as published. The Bill passed the Committee stage in November 2013 and it is expected that it will be signed into law within the next twelve to fifteen months.

01.01.14 Introduction of “Examinership Lite”

The Companies (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act, 2013  became  law on 24 December 2013.  It heralds the introduction of what some have referred to as “examinership-lite” and it is anticipated that it will provide for a more cost efficient mechanism of Examinership  and will be of assistance to ailing but viable businesses in the SME sector. The Act allows Examinerships to proceed in the Circuit Court rather than the High Court in the case of a “small company”, defined as a Compan:

• with a turnover not exceeding €8.8 million;
• with a balance sheet not exceeding €4.4 million; and
• with a workforce not exceeding 50.

We are available to discuss options with businesses in difficulty where they feel they have a reasonable prospect of surviving as a going concern. The Examinership process seeks to reduce the debt burden with an emphasis on preserving employment. The Courts have determined that the objective of Examinership is as follows:

“It is clear that the principal focus of the legislation is to enable, in an appropriate case, an enterprise to continue in existence for the benefit of the company as a whole and, of equal, or indeed of greater, importance to enable as many as possible of the jobs which may be at stake in such enterprise to be maintained for the benefit of the community in which the relevant employment is located. It is important both for the Court, and indeed for examiners, to keep in mind that such is the focus of the legislation. It is not designed to help shareholders whose investment has proved to be unsuccessful. It is to seek to save the enterprise and the jobs.” Clarke J (2007) in Re Traffic Group Limited (In Examinership) (2007)
