Companies may from time to time, face cash flow problems and creditor demands for payment. This is particularly so in a time of economic slowdown or downturn. Disgruntled creditors will usually sue the construction company for the monies that are owing to the creditors. Undergoing a scheme of arrangement or judicial management can provide time to the construction company to pay its creditors while at the same time, the company can benefit from a moratorium against legal action brought by creditors in court. This will give the construction company the opportunity to be rehabilitated and, ultimately, to pay its creditors whether in full or otherwise.
