Sports & Football Club agrees a successful Company Voluntary Proposal (CVA) with its creditors - Case Study

Ten pence in the pound agreed in football club CVA


This is an actual case but for the purpose of this case study we will give the company the fictional name of Bobby's Football Limited (“BFL”).


BFL, that had recently built its own club-house, bar and leisure facilities was saved from going out of existence by a Company Voluntary Arrangement, without the need for a moratorium.


Under this CVA the directors ofBPFL clubbed together to raise a lump sum of £20,000 and that sum was offered to creditors  who collectively were owed £200,000 in full and final settlement of their claims.


BFL’s creditors accepted the proposed dividend of ten pence in the pound as the alternative open to them was to receive nothing at all.
