Pre-pack Administration

A Pre-pack is the term used where a sale of all or part of a company’s business or assets is negotiated with a purchaser prior to the appointment of an Administrator, and the Administrator effects the sale immediately on, or shorty after appointment.

The overall benefits of Administration apply here; however, the key objective with this strategy is that trading continues seamlessly, in order to preserve the value of goodwill, and customer relationships.  Whilst a short term marketing exercise is put into place, the business continues to trade in the short term, whilst interest is explored.

As negotiations for the sale are carried out prior to the appointment of an Administrator, often the sale is completed in such a way that any work in progress is transferrable as part of the sale, in order that there is little to no disruption for customers, and the value of existing works is retained by the purchaser.

A pre-pack is typically beneficial to existing management wishing to buy back the business and assets, but is also an effective method of completing a sale to a third party whose interest the directors may have been aware of previously.

Why a Pre-pack Administration?

When exploring whether a pre-pack Administration is the most appropriate solution for your company, we will consider if any of the following factors apply:-

  • All or part of the business is viable going forwards, and there is an appetite from management or a third party to purchase quickly
  • Continuity of trade or supply is key to the overall value of the business and customer relationships
  • There is insufficient working capital to continue to trade during a more extensive marketing period

3 Key Questions on Company Administration

What is the purpose of a company administration?

A company administration has a clear focus in terms of the desired aims. An administration is often entered into when a business has increasing debts, with no resolution presenting itself, and the directors are currently struggling to keep the business going in its current state. It’s a very stressful time for directors, who often feel guilty for the situation of the business. An administration offers them hope that the business could not only survive but can even be made profitable again, so finding the right company administration advice is a great help.
