Webinar: New Reorganisation Mechanism ("ReorganisationsO")

The Austrian legislator has published a draft bill for the transposition of the Restructuring Directive into Austrian law. The bill introduces a new non-insolvent reorganisation mechanism which aims to support companies in restructuring their businesses. The impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the global economy will increase the practical importance of the new reorganisation mechanism.

We are delighted to host a webinar on New Reorganisation Mechanism ("ReorganisationsO") and invite you to join us as we discuss the legal effects as well as valuation implications of the new reorganisation mechanism in Austria on Thursday, 29 April 2021, at 10am CET.

Join our Vienna experts Friedrich Jergitsch (Partner) and Franz Nikolaus Tengg (Principal Associate) together with Christian Büchelhofer (Senior Director, valuation expert) from Alvarez & Marsal as they take a deep dive into the new reorganisation mechanism and discuss valuation procedures to determine and allocate any potential restructuring surplus. The webinar will particularly focus on how the new mechanism will affect the liability of debtors’ office holders, the creditors’ enforcement options, the obtaining of required majorities and the rights of outvoted creditors as provided for in the draft bill and also compare the new mechanism with the existing legal framework under the Austrian Insolvency Code.

Registration is now open and joining instructions will be sent to registered participants.
