Guest speakers from King & Wood Mallesons and Tiger Resources Limited will take you through the restructuring of Tiger Resources, an Australia-based mining company with two active copper extraction projects in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.  The ground-breaking restructuring, while confronting numerous challenges, saw the first ever guarantor of secured debt borrowed successfully compromise the debt and its guarantees using an Australian scheme.

You will hear from our speakers on:

  • this novel scheme which further expanded the scope of the Australian creditors’ scheme as a procedure to restructure cross-border debt;
  • the importance of this in Australia where there are no other debtor-controlled restructuring procedures like the US Chapter 11 or UK company voluntary arrangement; and
  • the challenges faced and the COVID-related post-script.
