SSM National Insolvency Conference 2017: Corporate Restructuring & Insolvency under the Companies Act 2015

On 3 October 2017, the Companies Commission of Malaysia (SSM) is holding the SSM National Insolvency Conference 2017 entitled ‘Corporate Restructuring & Insolvency under Companies Act 2016: A Paradigm Change’. I have been involved in the organising of the sessions and it promises to be a very interesting conference. The registration fee is RM700.

I will be speaking and moderating Session 2 on ‘Corporate Rescue Mechanism: How It Will Work’. Joining me will be Mohamed Sufyan Mohamed Mokhtar from SSM and  Victor Saw of PwC.

Under the Companies Act 2016, the corporate rescue mechanism is made up of corporate voluntary arrangement and judicial management. Although the corporate rescue mechanism provisions have not been brought into force yet, it is anticipated that these provisions will come into effect by May 2018. In the meantime, the new draft Corporate Rescue Mechanism Rules are close to being finalised as well.

In our Session 2, the speakers will be fleshing out the application of the corporate voluntary arrangement and judicial management through factual scenarios. That should assist in seeing the practical implementation of these new mechanisms.

The other topics covered at the National Insolvency Conference are:

  • The World Bank’s Perspective on Debtors’ and Creditors’ Rights.
  • New Guidelines in Striking Off of Companies and Asset Management of Dissolved Companies.
  • Impact of the Companies Act 2016 on Winding Up.
  • What It Takes to Become an Insolvency Practitioner.
