Receivership and Agency Services

An appointment of an Agent or Receiver/Receiver-Manager is usually mandated by a General Security Agreement (GSA). The purpose is to provide an orderly and timely possession and sale of assets, or to provide a vehicle to revitalize a business, for example to restructure a business or to make productive business operations more attractive for sale while eliminating non producing business operations. A Receiver-Manager has powers to operate a business, while Agents generally are appointed to seize and sell assets, while Receivers have limited powers to operate a business.

Key Benefits

  • Enables a secured creditor to mandate the means to take possession of and sell their security, advances are made and security is taken by the lender.
  • The appointment may be defined to focus the mandate on specific objectives.
  • Business assets may be sold after statutory notices are served on affected stakeholders, and the net proceeds after paying out priority creditors, applied against indebtedness to the security holder.
