The recent case of Cortefiel SA, a leading Spanish high street clothing retailer, has demonstrated the possibility of amending and extending a company’s obligations under its finance documents by way of an English law scheme of arrangement.
In this article we examine:
(1) the potential use of schemes as a tool for amend and extend proposals in light of the Cortefiel decision; and
(2) the implications for collateralised loan obligation vehicles and likely grounds for challenge.
This article follows our recent seminar "Amend & Extend: Schemes of Arrangement" as part of our Bank Finance and Restructuring Seminar Series.
