Singapore Restructuring: Ahead of the Curve in a COVID-19 World

This webinar will provide attendees with an understanding of Singapore’s insolvency and restructuring regime, up to date information on recent key developments in law and practice in Singapore, as well as a regulator’s perspective on the impact of Singapore’s new restructuring laws on the regulation of listed companies. In particular, the webinar will focus on why Singapore should be seen as a restructuring hub for the region. The webinar will also cover the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as measures taken to reduce the same, including the Covid-19 (Temporary Measures) Act 2020 and other related legislation.

The webinar will be in Question and Answer format, and present attendees with a unique opportunity to hear directly from senior members of the Singapore government, judiciary and regulator, on the following issues:

- Singapore’s new Insolvency, Restructuring and Dissolution Act 2018 (“IRDA”). Key new features of the IRDA will be discussed, including ipso facto clauses, thresholds for summary dissolution, regulation of insolvency practitioners, and third party financing, among others.
- The Singapore government’s support for the development of Singapore as a restructuring hub, and the key milestone developments to date.
- Broad patterns and trends in cases that have come through the Singapore courts and/or the regulator before and since the introduction of the IRDA.
- Current and anticipated (if any) relief measures taken in light of COVID-19, and how COVID-19 is likely to affect trends and developments generally in the restructuring space.
