International Convention on Insolvency Resolution and Valuation

Know about the

The Convention- RESOLVE 2024

The landscape of insolvency and valuation has undergone a dynamic transformation in recent years, catalyzed by the profound influence of the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code of 2016. The enactment of the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC) 2016 in India has heralded a new era in the country's corporate and financial landscape. Since its inception, the IBC has achieved significant milestones, revolutionizing the insolvency resolution process and playing a pivotal role in fostering growth and stability within the Indian economy. As market complexities continue to evolve, there arises an imperative to enhance and fortify the insolvency ecosystem to effectively serve public interests.

Valuation assumes a critical role within the framework of insolvency, serving as a linchpin upon which the success of the entire process hinges. Accurate valuations facilitate transparent negotiations and aid in the formulation of effective resolution plans, ensuring fair treatment of all parties involved. Ultimately, by providing a clear understanding of the financial landscape, valuation contributes significantly to the success of insolvency proceedings, enabling the maximization of value for all stakeholders. This pivotal role played by valuation in the overarching success of insolvency proceedings has catalyzed the enactment of Section 247 in the Companies Act 2013 and the introduction of The Companies (Registered Valuers and Valuation) Rules, 2017. These legislative measures have been implemented to regulate and foster the development of the valuation profession within the country, underscoring the critical importance of standardized valuation practices in navigating the complexities of insolvency resolution.

The development of Valuation Standards for the Securities or Financial Asset class by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of India (ICAI) has further significantly strengthened and streamlined the valuation ecosystem thereby strengthening the overall insolvency framework. These standards provide a robust framework for valuation professionals, enhancing transparency, consistency, and reliability in the valuation process. By adhering to these standards, stakeholders are able to make informed decisions, thereby facilitating smoother insolvency resolutions and maximizing value extraction.

Amidst an era characterized by heightened interconnectivity of global economies and amidst fluctuating global financial uncertainties, the IBC has emerged as a cornerstone for maintaining economic stability and instilling confidence in the business ecosystem. The proliferation of Insolvency and Valuation Professionals along with other stakeholders actively engaged in the resolution process underscores their indispensable role in ensuring economic resilience, extending their influence across the intricate economic value chain.
