Examinership is a process whereby the protection of the Court is obtained to assist the survival of a company. Essentially it allows a company to restructure with the approval of the Courts. The usual outcome of the process is that creditor balances are reduced, the assets of the company are protected, investment is obtained and the directors remain in control of the business during the examination process which is supervised by an expert practising accountant called the Examiner.

Examinership is an option available to an insolvent company that enables it to explore all opportunities to provide for its survival. It is a management friendly process that is inclusive of customers, creditors, suppliers and staff.
