Australian DOCAs versus UK pre-packs and CVAs : sifting through the ashes of comparative dividend returns
Wellard, Mark Norman (2014) Australian DOCAs versus UK pre-packs and CVAs : sifting through the ashes of comparative dividend returns. Insolvency Law Bulletin, 15(8), pp. 123-126.
This article is something of a brief extension of recent research into deeds of company arrangement (DOCAs) under Pt 5.3A of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth), conducted with the support of the Australian Restructuring Insolvency & Turnaround Association’s (ARITA’s) Terry Taylor Scholarship (TTS). This article presents some of the findings of that research (namely, the dividend outcomes delivered by sampled Australian DOCAs) in a manner consistent with reports which have recently emerged from similar research conducted in the UK. In so doing, a basic comparison can be made of the performance of Australian DOCAs against analogous UK procedures.
