Overview

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 2022 instalment continues that discussion (with some new speakers) and will look to cover the following:

  • Trends of in-bound restructuring applications received in Singapore
  • The extent to which foreign law is a consideration to restructurings in Singapore, including the impact of the UK Gibbs rule on the decision of an Indonesian company to restructure in Singapore
  • Recognition of foreign restructuring proceedings by Indonesian courts
  • Proposed changes to Indonesia's bankruptcy legislation and PKPU proceedings

In addition, attendees may be invited to participate in a hypothetical case study that may be discussed during the webinar.

 

When is this webinar scheduled?

This webinar will take place from 3pm to 4:10pm (Singapore time) on Thursday, 31 March 2022.

Please be mindful of the time difference if you are joining from outside of Singapore.

Is this webinar accredited for continuing professional development (CPD) points for Singapore-admitted lawyers?

This webinar has been accredited 1 public CPD point. Attendees who wish to claim CPD points are reminded to provide their AAS numbers or other number issued by the Singapore Institute of Legal Education (SILE) during registration. You are required to strictly follow the attendance policy of SILE before CPD points can be awarded. Please refer to www.sileCPDcentre.sg for more information.

 

I am qualified in a jurisdiction other than Singapore. Will attending this webinar entitle me to claim relevant CPD-equivalent points in my own jurisdiction?

The answer to this question depends on the rules of the relevant governing body in your jurisdiction. In the past, we have issued letters of attendance accompanied by actual Zoom log-in records to assist non-Singapore-qualified attendees to claim their professional learning points. Therefore, if a letter of attendance and a Zoom record are all you need, we will be able to help. Likewise, we have issued the same set of documents to professionals other than lawyers who may also have such continuing education requirements.

However, if the rules of your jurisdiction require an event to be accredited, we regret that this session will not entitle you to claim points outside of Singapore.

 

What if I am unable to attend this webinar after registration? Are the fees paid refundable?

Unfortunately, the payments made are not refundable. If you are unable to attend the webinar, we request that you let us know as soon as possible so that we can let you transfer your slot to your colleague.

 

I am interested in this webinar but unable to make it for the live session. If I register, will a recording be made available to me?

Yes, a recording of the webinar can be made available upon request via a private link, though it is important to bear in mind that viewing the recording will not entitle you to any public CPD points. In principle, we only provide recording upon request by a paid attendee.

 

Will the materials presented at the webinar be made available to attendees?

The materials can be made available to attendees if the speakers so consent as they are the copyright owners of their presentation materials. Those who wish to receive such materials are advised to write to catherine_shen@abli.asia after the webinar for more information.

 

I want to sign up for the webinar but my organization requires registration to be done by other means, such as by sending an invoice to a dedicated portal. How do I register in this case?

In principle, your registration for the webinar is only confirmed after payment is made online. However, if you need to pay against a manual invoice by bank transfer or other means, or if you are from a Singapore government agency that uses a central invoicing system, please write to catherine_shen@abli.asia so that ABLI can arrange an alternative way of registration for you, taking your needs into consideration.

 

Who can I contact if I have more questions?
