Re Brown Bear Foods Ltd

Company – Insolvency. A company had difficulty paying its debts. A petition for its winding up was presented. The sole director of the company applied, pursuant to para 12(1)(b) of Sch B1 to the Insolvency Act 1986, for an order for the appointment of two directors as joint administrators of the company. The Chancery Division held that, whilst on paper the criteria for making an administration order, as set out at para 11 of Sch B1 to the Act, had been made out, on the evidence, various matters required explanation. Where other alternatives required consideration, the court was not persuaded that it should make an administration order.
