Examinerships are a key option for businesses that are under pressure due to their overall liabilities, whether to banks, the Revenue Commissioners or general creditors. They allow the company to explore all possibilities for survival.

The examinership process is used by a company in financial difficulty to reach a legally binding agreement with its funders and creditors so it can continue trading.

Examinerships allow management and other stakeholders time and space to rescue the business, working in conjunction with the examiner to formulate rescue plans. Throughout the process, the business can continue to trade and is afforded protection from its funders and creditors.

When a business goes into examinership it can cause significant challenges, disruption and stress for creditors, staff, directors, shareholders, financial institutions and state agencies.
