Singapore High Court concedes interim judicial management to Hin Leong Trading

28 Apr 2020

Financially troubled Singapore oil company Hin Leong Trading Pte Ltd on Monday (27 April) was reportedly granted interim judicial management by Singapore High Court in view of its crushing USD 3.85 billion debt and legal investigations.

The virtual hearing was initially set to be on Thursday (30 April) but has allegedly been brought forward ahead of time at the request of creditors, according to the Business Times.

It has been previously reported that accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) was appointed by HLT to manage the firm in the iterim, and now Goh Thien Phong and Chan Kheng Tek of PwC are purported to assume the role of  judicial managers. 

PwC now has eight weeks to file a preliminary report assessing whether HLT can be salvaged through restructuring or rehabilitation.
