Cross-Border Restructuring and Insolvency in the SICC

21 Aug 2023 LegisWatch

Singapore has invested significant efforts in positioning itself as a regional restructuring hub in recent years, introducing substantial reforms and enhancements to improve the effectiveness of its debt restructuring regime. These reforms include enhanced moratorium protections, super-priority for rescue financing, “pre-packaged” schemes of arrangements, and restrictions on the operation of ipso facto clauses.

In yet another step to encourage foreign companies to restructure their debts in Singapore, the Singapore International Commercial Court (SICC) opened its doors to cross-border restructuring and insolvency matters in 2022.

This update discusses some of the features which make the SICC a desirable venue for cross-border debt restructurings.
