Keith Steven of KSA was interviewed by Accountancy Age, see here for the article from Accountancy Age which looks at the CVA mechanism. The CVA mechanism is increasingly being seen as a better alternative to administration to rescue viable businesses. What is more they can be flexible and fluid to appease the demands of creditors.
Also criticism that CVA's don't work is unfair. 65% of all businesses fail in the first 3 years of trading so it is inevitable that CVA's are not going to have a 100% success rate given that it is a solution applied to business in very serious financial difficulty in the first place.
With the possible demise of pre-packs in future, the CVA should be considered in every case.
