Proposal for company Debt Management Plan (D.M.P.)

Name of Company: XYZ Limited (The Company)
Business Address: The Street, A Town, England
Date: ........................ 20..

1. INTRODUCTION

XYZ Limited was formed in 2007 with the merger of two existing businesses, which had been based in London and ABC Limited which had been based in Newcastle.
The principal areas of business were then those of retailing consumer gifts and cards through retail outlets.
The original executive directors were Mr Black (resigned Feb 2006) and Mr White (resigned 2008), non executive directors were Mr Grey (resigned Feb 2009) and Mr Brown (Resigned Mar 2009).
Four employees were appointed directors in April, 2009 following a management buy out, Mr Red responsible for finance (Mrs Yellow responsible for retail operations Mr Orange responsible for account handling and , Mr Pink responsible new business development and sales.
The first two years of trading (2010-12) produced losses and resulted in the resignation of Mrs Yellow and cut backs in staff levels. The following year (2013) the company then moved into profit.
In June of 2014 our then auditors, found themselves in difficulties and ceased to trade. The directors sought advice from the company bankers with the result that in September, 2014, new auditors were appointed. The directors were unable to acquire all the files from the old auditors. It transpired that those files, along with those of other companies had gone 'missing'. The new auditors had difficulty arising from the absence of those key files. The auditors were also heavily dependent upon information supplied by the internal accountant.

2015 saw the arrival of a major discount retailer who took up occupational  premises geographically close our existing shops resulting in sales declining  by over  £800,000 per annum. Around the same time the business was also experiencing a downturn in sales as a result of the migration of purchasing through online portals own by competitors. This made further staff cutbacks necessary across the business.

From inception, the company was heavily involved spontaneous gift special occasion card purchases, mainly with retail outlets in shopping centres across the UK. Due no doubt to changes in consumer purchasing habits this was an area of business that was becoming increasingly more competitive and it became apparent that to stay competitive the business had cut margins and the already tight profit margins were becoming smaller and smaller.

The directors asked the auditors to review the profitability or otherwise of this area. Their initial report indicated that the company was only breaking even in this area of business and most probably losing money on what was about 50% of the then turnover. Based on these findings, it was decided that the company should withdraw from this area of business and concentrate on developing its online presence.

At around the same time, the new auditors questioned the high levels of stock that where held and its value. With a turnover of some £1million and stock  figures of £250,000 plus didn't initially seem unreasonable provided it could be sold. As the audit for progressed, a growing number of discrepancies in the internal accounting procedures became apparent.

Apart from this high level of stock, which turned out to virtually unsaleable, PAYE/NI and VAT were in arrears and the company had incurred surcharges. Those findings meant that the previous years results had to be restated turning what had been a profit into a loss. The internal accountant was then asked to leave the company.

Swift action was needed to avert the collapse of the company. Mr Pink along with the assistance of the auditors took control of finances and installed Sage software to prepare regular management accounts. Further staff cuts were made. All salaries were reduced with the directors taking the largest share and pension payments were ceased. Mr Pink  and Mr Orange sold their company cars and in addition injected personal monies. The structure of the company was reviewed and new budgets and working disciplines introduced. Unprofitable lines was shed and on the advice of the auditors, the directors met with The BDG Group the Sponsors of this DMP to discuss the situation and further remedial actions were then put in place. The Sponsors  considered that it was possible for the company to trade out of the difficulties by investment in an online presence for the business.

In early 2016 the bank account was moved from X Bank PLC to Y Bank PLC. In addition to an overdraft facility of £200,000 Mr Pink and Mr Orange they took out a further personal loans totalling £80,000 which was injected into the company. The company overdraft was secured by personal guarantees and backed up by outside security. The company earned a modest profit for the year to March 2016. In consequence pressures from creditors eased considerably.

In comparison to 2014/5 the performance from April to August, 2016 was much healthier and the overall position was considerably ahead of the position at that point in the previous year. The business development plans were continued and energies were focused on developing the 'Internet Retailing' side of the business in which potential was anticipated.

It had been the intention for Mr Orange to withdraw from the business at the end of 2017. However, with the change of emphasis in the nature of the business Mr Orange proposed that he should bring this forward and presented the other directors with a proposal for an earlier withdrawal. In this Mr Orange proposes to make a loan to the company of £115,000 and also pay off half of the outstanding balance on the £80,000 personal loan he and Mr Pink had taken with X Bank PLC. This withdrawal would also benefit the company by way of reducing overheads. In exchange for this capital injection, it is proposed that Mr Kingston will take a second debenture behind X Bank PLC.

September had seen further declines in sales. This coincided with a number of bad debts, including a major wholesales export client which was experiencing its own financial difficulties resulting in wrangling for payment and prompting the company to instigate legal proceedings. As a result only a percentage of the outstanding debt has been received and over a period of months this has had an extremely negative effect on the company's cashflow.
October and November 2017 figures were disappointing. In the meantime the company has gained a considerable amount of new and profitable business from internet sales. However, the directors could see that cashflow benefits would not arise from the increased work for at least eight weeks.
The future direction of XYZ Limited is a substantial change of emphasis. The traditional core elements of the business:- those being retail and some wholesale of cards and gifts are no longer profitable I today’s market.
However, the most profitable area of the business  is online sales which are growing experientially

A combination of associated services now being marketed as XYZ Information Services is generating increased business with a high element of profit and low purchases and this is intended to be the main area of business development in the future.

These services are:-

Online cards, flowers, gifts and special occasion items. The business emphasises the personal touch for customers. If a customer has someone in mind, the business has something to wow their nearest and dearest. With  personalised gifts, customers can add a special name, photos or even their own handwriting to cards!

Confirmed sales for completion for the period December, 2016 to October, 2017 totalled £1,243,000 and they growing at a compound rate of 10% per month.

The directors then gave consideration to placing the company into  Liquidation and then re-starting a new company. The directors concluded, however, that they had no wish to see any creditors lose money,  as the prospects for the business now appeared to be promising, they would wish to put forward a Debt Management Proposal. The objective being to repay all creditors in full over time.

The directors discussed the position with the company bankers and on their advice sought guidance from the auditors. The auditors advised us to meet with the The BDG Group and this proposal follows as a result.

 

It is apparent from the Statement of Affairs shown at Schedule 1 that if the company were now placed into  Liquidation, neither preferential nor unsecured creditors would receive any dividend at all as the stock would then become worthless.

On a liquidation it can be seen from that same statement that X Bank PLC would suffer a shortfall of some £138,000.
XYZ Limited is essentially a "people business" and it is in the light of a substantial growth in online sales that the following proposals are made.

2. DEBT MANAGEMENT PROPOSALS

2.1 It is proposed that:
2.1.1 The company pay into this voluntary arrangement, the sum of £3,500 per month for a Four year period.
2.1.2 Mr Orange introduce £115,000 into the business, which will be used to reduce the X Bank overdraft. Mr Orange would then be granted a second debenture.
It is further proposed that Mr Orange  would be treated as a "deferred creditor" and would not share in any part of the dividends paid to creditors out of the pool of money arising from the £3,500 per month payable into this arrangement.
2.1.3. The 'associated' creditors totalling £94,745 also be treated as deferred creditors.
Additionally, it is proposed that and Mr Pink capitalises his outstanding loan totalling £79,745 which sums are included in the total of £94,745.
2.1.4 In relation to X Bank PLC (The Bank) the following proposals are made:-
that the company collect in the existing debtors totalling £64,000 and pay that in its entirety to the bank. (The bank are entitled to those monies in any event as they hold a fixed charge over trade debtors).
that the old bank account be frozen at its present balance of £198,000 and that the £64,000 expected to be received in from the existing debtors be paid in to that old account.
that the £115,000 to be paid in by Mr Orange be paid into that "old" bank account.
the consequences of the above transactions are that the directors expect the old bank account to reduce as follows:-

  £ £
Present bank balance   198,000
Less:    
Expected debtor proceeds 60,000  
Cash from Mr. Orange 115,000  
    175,000
     
Revised bank balance   23,000

that the bank consider providing the company with a "new" overdraft facility based on the cashflow projections and profit projections shown at schedules 8 and 9.
(The director, Mr Orange would continue to provide outside security to X Bank PLC for the residual balance on the "old" account and the balance on the new account).
that the company pay to the bank a monthly sum of £1,000 (being capital and interest) to extinguish the residual balance on the "old" account over a period.
2.1.5 The effect of these proposals in terms of the dividend payable to preferential and unsecured creditors is calculated at Schedule 6 attached.
From that schedule it should be noted that:
preferential creditors would be paid in full on the first anniversary of the arrangement.
unsecured creditors would receive dividends on the second, third and fourth anniversaries. It is proposed that each of these dividends be one third of the amount owed to creditors, such that all unsecured creditors will have been repaid in full by the time of the fourth anniversary.
2.2 To minimise Sponsor’s costs, it is additionally proposed that the Sponsor will not be involved with the subsequent trading of this company, if this proposal is agreed except to the extent set out in Clause 2.19.
2.3 Schedule 1 to this proposal lists all of the assets of the company showing estimated net realisable values, on a going concern basis, less amounts owing to secured preferential and unsecured creditors.
2.4 It is proposed to deal with the claims of creditors as follows:-

SECURED CREDITORS

X Bank PLC is the only secured creditor. X Bank PLC have a fixed and floating charge over the assets of the company.
Nothing in this proposal however, restricts the rights of X Bank PLC at present or in the future of appointing either a book debt receiver or administrative receiver.
A "new" bank account has already been set up with Y Bank PLC for post D.M.P. trading. An overdraft on that new account will be requested by the directors based on; the attached cashflow forecasts (See schedule 9). The balance on the "new" account is presently a positive figure of £11,769.

PREFERENTIAL CREDITORS

It is proposed to deal with claims of preferential creditors as follows:-
Preferential creditors arising from the pre D.M.P. period will enjoy the same priority, as if there had- been a  liquidation
.
It is further proposed that a new additional class of preferential creditor would arise should there be any failure of this arrangement. Such creditors would be calculated within the meaning of Sections 175 and 386 of the Insolvency Act 1986 with the "relevant date" being the date on which the Sponsor issues a "Certificate of Failure of the Debt Management Arrangement".
Pre D.M.P and post D.M.P preferential creditors are to enjoy the same priority one as against the other in relation to all of the unpledged assets.
DEFERRED CREDITORS

The following creditors are classed as "deferred".

  £
Proposed - Mr Orange - Loan 115,000
Existing loans from the shareholders and directors 94,745
   
Total deferred creditors 209,745

It is proposed that deferred creditors receive no dividend over the four year life of the arrangement.
It is proposed that £79,745 of the existing loans be capitalised.
Once all pre D.M.P. preferential and unsecured creditors have been paid in full, the two classes of creditors shown above will no longer be classified as deferred.

UNSECURED CREDITORS

Pre D.M.P. unsecured creditors will rank pari passu for payment. Any such claims which had been inadvertently omitted from the attached statement of affairs or the arrangement and whose total debts do not exceed 10% of the total of all claims lodged will be invited to claim in and be bound by the arrangement. This is subject however, to the proviso that any dividend already paid will not be disturbed, but lost dividends can be made up from any future distributions.
In the event of this D.M.P. failing, then post D.M.P. unsecured creditors will have a claim as ordinary unsecured creditors then ranking equally with pre D.M.P. unsecured creditors.

ASSOCIATED CREDITORS

Those creditors "associated" with or "connected" with the company within the meaning of Section 249 of the 1986 Insolvency Act are set out in detail at Schedule 5 attached.
All 'associated' creditors are proposed to be treated as 'deferred'.
2.5 To the directors knowledge, there are no circumstances giving rise to the possibility, in the event that the company should go into liquidation, of claims under:-
Section 238 (transactions at an undervalue)
Section 239 (preferences except to the extent referred to at paragraph 4.3)
Section 244 (extortionate credit transactions)
Section 245 (invalid floating charges)
However, there are 66 creditors -each being for a sum less than £200, which together total £3,637. Those creditors have not been included in this document as it is proposed that the company immediately settle those creditors in full. The directors of the company are of the opinion that that would be the most cost effective way of dealing with such small creditors.
2.6 No liabilities of the company have been guaranteed by any other party except that the liability to X Bank PLC has been guaranteed by Mr Kingston and Mr Harrow.
2.7 It is proposed that the D.M.P. last four years.
2.8 Distributions to creditors and amounts thereof are proposed to be made as follows:

2.9 A reconciliation is shown at Schedule 6 detailing the total amount to be realised into the arrangement less the costs of the arrangement, to provide the net figures being the amount distributable shown above.
Any creditor who has not lodged his claim having received 21 days notice will be excluded from that dividend, but if the claim is lodged late, that creditor will be entitled to make up that amount from future realisations.
2.10 Sponsors fees for producing the D.M.P. proposal and for dealing with all matters up to and including negotiations with creditors is proposed to be in the sum of £5,000 plus V.A.T. or 10% Plus VAT of the unsecured creditors of the company whichever is the greater.

It is further proposed that the Sponsor recover all third party disbursements and also be entitled to any costs and disbursements including legal costs, which he incurs in connection with any legal action by creditors, unless the court orders otherwise.

2.11 It is proposed that Sponsors fees be based on the time costs of the Sponsors company.
It is also proposed that the Sponsors remuneration shall be calculated by reference to the time spent by the Sponsor and his staff.
The Sponsor’s fees and expenses shall rank ahead of the claims of creditors.
The Sponsor will be entitled to be reimbursed his costs any any other expenses incurred in bringing or defending any action in the arrangement, unless the court order otherwise.
2.12 The directors of the company do not propose to offer any additional personal guarantees to creditors in relation to this proposed D.M.P. proposal.
2.13 The Sponsor shall open a current account at Barclays Bank Plc ..........................and all payments to the Sponsor shall be promptly paid into such account. The Sponsor shall have discretion to invest funds surplus to the immediate requirements of the arrangement on deposit on money market from time to time, pending any distribution of such funds.
2.14 If upon termination of the arrangement, any funds held for the purposes of payment to creditors remain in the hands of the Sponsor because any creditor (a) has failed to claim at all, or (b). has not cashed any cheque forwarded to him, or (c), can no longer be traced or, if after the D.M.P. has been concluded, the then former Sponsor receives funds which were not anticipated to have been receivable at the time of closure, such funds will be dealt with as follows:
If the aggregate of such funds after costs exceeds £1,000, a further distribution shall be made to those creditors who are able to participate therein, less the (former) Sponsor’s outstanding time costs and disbursements, if any. If such funds, however, amount to less than that amount, the costs of a distribution are not justified and accordingly, the balance will be returned to the company after deducting any amounts outstanding for any outstanding time costs and disbursement of the (former) Sponsor.
2.15 During the course of the D.M.P., the new trading of the company will not be carried out under the auspices of the Sponsor and the Sponsor will not be involved in or in any way responsible for such new trading.
2.16 During the continuation of this D.M.P. any new credit taken by the company during the course of the arrangement is to be settled by the company ex. the proposed new Y Bank Plc D.M.P. account. That new bank account being operated by the directors of the company and not by the Sponsor. In the event of the failure of this arrangement, any positive balance on that account will be treated as being available to meet the costs of the arrangement and of the Sponsor and secondly to be available by way of set off against the "old" X Bank account.
2.17 The Sponsor’s functions shall be:
(a) To receive all funds payable into the arrangement (i.e. £3,500 monthly)
(b) To negotiate all creditors claims.
(c) To make distributions to creditors in due order of priority and on the due dates shown at paragraph 2.1.
(d) To retain solicitors, agents or other professional advisors if required for the beneficial purposes of the arrangement at the expense of the estate.
(e) To receive monthly profit and loss accounts and balance sheets. To forward all creditors annually a summary of the company results and as to the general progress of the arrangement.
(f) To authorise the release of funds form the estate to defend disputed claims where appropriate.
(g) To review on a regular basis whether the D.M.P. has failed in accordance with the criteria set out in paragraph 2.19 below.
2.18 It is proposed that the Sponsor of the arrangement shall be The BDG Group in relation to the company.
2.19 These clauses deal with the control of the D.M.P. and the Sponsor’s duty should the arrangement be declared a failure.
2.19.1 The arrangement shall be declared a failure if:
(a) The first instalment of £3,500 is not received within seven days of the arrangement being approved at the creditors meeting called to consider this proposal.
(b) Two consecutive payments of the monthly instalments are not received on the due dates. The due date of each instalment, except the first, being on the 31st of each month.

6. AUDITED ACCOUNTS
The last audited accounts filed with the Registrar of Companies were those for the year ended 31st March, 2016.
Those accounts were prepared on a going concern basis. The auditors report notes, inter alia
"Fundamental uncertainty"... "During June, 2016 the company directors were able to re-negotiate banking facilities for the company which is dependent upon the company' s achievement of the projections prepared by the directors for the period ended 31st March, 2019"
"The company directors have also had to continue to make arrangements with company creditors to discuss settlement periods for outstanding liabilities. The directors consider that provided the creditors continue to support the company by allowing a further period for settlement, then the company will be able to continue to trade for the foreseeable future".
The auditors report was, therefore, qualified for these fundamental uncertainties.
The net deficiency shown on the Balance Sheet at 31st March, 2016 was £296,815.
