A company cannot remain in administration indefinitely, however, there is not one sole route out of administration. Some companies may be able to continue trading following an element of restructuring and/or refinancing of company liabilities.
Other companies may be sold as part of the administration, whether by way of a pre-pack sale, or a sale on the open market to an unconnected buyer. If the company is seen as ultimately viable, yet its liabilities are too great to be sustainable, it may be the case that the company exits administration and immediately enters an alternative formal process such as a Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA). Should all attempts to save the company fail, there may be no option but to place the company into liquidation using a CVL process.

A pre-packaged – or pre-pack – administration process involves the sale of a company to either a connected or unconnected party.
A company going into administration does not necessarily mean that the business will cease to exist; in fact, rescuing the company as a going concern is often the main objective.
When a company enters administration, it is granted a temporary moratorium. A moratorium can be seen as a legal ringfence which is placed around the company, preventing creditors from initiating litigation proceedings.
