Following a highly successful session in 2021, the Asian Business Law Institute is organising a second webinar on the use of Singapore (and other foreign regimes) for the restructuring of Indonesian companies. In our earlier session, we discussed Singapore's Insolvency, Restructuring and Dissolution Act and the Indonesian bankruptcy regime and examined why Indonesian companies are looking to restructure their debts in Singapore.
This seminar will discuss the use of Singapore law as a governing law in cross-border lending transactions. We will cover some of the key implications that follow where a loan transaction is governed by Singapore law, including in relation to documentation, lending and collateral structures, enforcement and foreign recognition, and the effects of insolvency and the IRDA. We will also discuss some of the differences between English law and Singapore law, particularly in the context of insolvency, as well as the recent English decision in Prosafe and its implications for the choice of Singapore law cross-border financings.
Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPACs) have been one of the hottest asset classes in the United States equity market, with record numbers launched in the first quarter of 2021. The boom in SPACs has attracted a tremendous amount of attention. Last year, SGX announced that SPACs can be listed on the Mainboard of the SGX-ST.
This webinar explores how SPACs and business combinations are structured in the United States, and a comparison between the SGX SPAC listing framework and the regulations applying to SPACs and market trends in the United States.
