Doing Business in Australia - restructuring opportunities and challenges
Karen O'Flynn describes the trends and challenges in Australian restructuring. To learn more about the state of play of the Australian market: https://www.claytonutz.com/about/international-services/australian-market-the-state-of-play _________________________________________________ You can also find this video on our website https://www.claytonutz.com/knowledge/video/doing-business-in-australia-restructuring-opportunities-and-challenges See more videos from Clayton Utz here https://www.claytonutz.com/videohub/ Follow us on Social Media https://www.linkedin.com/company/clayton-utz https://twitter.com/claytonutz Transcript Australia is a very attractive place for distressed investors at the moment. A number of sectors of our economy continue to be vulnerable: property, construction, retail and mining. Traditional local lenders are looking to reduce their exposure to those sectors, frequently because of increased regulatory requirements, and so can be willing to sell their positions sometimes at a considerable discount. Against that background it's not surprising that in recent years a number of global hedge funds and privately equity firms have opened offices in Australia. These dynamics have meant a significant increase in debt for equity restructurings in Australia in recent years. The tools used include schemes of arrangement and deeds of company arrangements. Before discussing those tools I want you to know that Australian directors face one of the harshest insolvent trading regimes in the world. By that I mean an Australian company director will be liable for new debts incurred by his or her company at a time when the company is cashflow insolvent. That's often said to be one of the principal impediments to the successful restructuring of financially distressed businesses in this country. The theory goes that because directors are so concerned about their potential liability on a personal level for insolvent trading they move to put their company into some form of insolvent administration sooner than would otherwise be required. But that's all about to change, or so the Government hopes, with the introduction of the safe harbour reforms. The idea here is that those directors who are honestly and diligently working towards restoring their company to solvency will be protected. So if at the time the new debts are incurred the director is developing or taking a course of action which is reasonably likely to lead to a better outcome for the company than immediate formal insolvency, the director will be protected. As I've said the two tools most often used for equity restructurings in Australia are schemes of arrangement and deeds of company arrangement or DOCAs. Because the DOCA is a peculiarly antipodean technique I want to say something about it. It always has to be preceded by the administration. That's a normal insolvency procedure under which an independent qualified accountant is appointed to take control of the company, investigate its financial affairs and report to creditors as to what the best outcome for them is. Creditors vote on that recommendation and report. The DOCA is nothing more than the contractual compromise between the insolvent company and its creditors. Typically the DOCA proponent will want to demonstrate to creditors that they will receive more in respect of their debts under the DOCA than they would if the company went straight into liquidation. In a debt for equity play the DOCA will always be conditional on the Court approving the transfer of the shares in the company to the DOCA proponent usually for nil consideration. The Court will give its approval only if it's satisfied that the proposed transaction won't unfairly prejudice shareholders. The case law makes it clear that shareholders will not be unfairly prejudiced if it can be demonstrated that on the only viable alternative ‒ that is, liquidation ‒ the shareholders are unlikely to receive any return at all.

🇦🇺 Australia's boomtown curse | 101 East
Australia is blessed with rugged beauty and a wealth of natural resources - including coal, iron, natural gas and gold. Such minerals are powering Australia's economy to record highs. And as demand from China for more resources grows, new mines continue to open across the country. But critics say there is a dark side to this success story. Mining regions attract transient workers keen to make a quick buck, creating social and environmental problems and a rising crime rate. Mines are also draining Australia's pool of skilled labour from other industries and driving up wages. 101 East asks: What is the cost of Australia's mining boom? Here Australian 101 East fixer Sian Gard takes us behind the scenes of the 12-day film shoot with reporter-producer Chan Tau Chou and cameraman Lee Ali. When you travel what is the worst thing that could happen? Some might say missing a flight, others might say you get crammed into the centre seat on a full flight. But when you are part of a film crew, one of the more difficult challenges is travelling with 181 kilogrammes of camera equipment. When an international film crew from Al Jazeera English calls you and says they want to come to Australia and film a story about the mining industry in two weeks time, the first thing you say is "I would love to be a part of this incredible story". The second thing you do? Start working fast. The scope and depth of the mining industry, its impact on the country and the state can be broken down into small digestible chunks as political, economic and social, but the bigger picture is a great deal more complicated. The Australian mining industry has seen exponential growth over the last 10 years with increasing exports to China. Western Australia, considered the economic hub of the country, now holds the nation's purse strings and is host to some of the world's most influential mining and resource sector companies. Perth, considered the second-most isolated city in the world, has seen changes on many fronts that not only includes an increase in resource dollars but a higher cost of living, a politically strong liberal state government and increasing financial disparity between mining and resource sector employees and everyone else. So how does one get all these issues into one story? You make phone calls and lots of them. One-hundred-and-eighty-one kilogrammes of camera equipment and an introductory dinner later, we are off filming in Perth and Karratha. We have 12 days to interview a range of people invested in the mining and resources sector in various ways. Finance experts, counsellors who see the downside of living a Fly-In-Fly-Out (FIFO) lifestyle, business operators who say their home towns are dying due to the mining industry and police who are left to clean up the alcohol and drug fuelled mess from workers blowing off steam. The biggest challenge of a shoot on this scale? Distance, time and getting people to talk on camera. Logistically, organising a film shoot for a crew that is flying from Malaysia to Perth in western Australia and then Karratha in the north-west of western Australia, with budgets and deadlines is exciting, fun and a challenge. Accommodation, hire cars, flights, places to eat, filming permissions and scheduling interviews, your world becomes one mission and one only. Get what the film crew needs so that the story is done. Karratha in the north of the state is a 22-hour drive by car or a two-hour flight on one of two commercial carriers that fly every hour to the isolated desert town. After checking in with 181 kilogrammes of camera equipment or 13 cases of luggage and arriving in Karratha, we unpack and our long days begin. The strain of putting together a half-hour documentary in a foreign country and dealing with tight deadlines can put a great deal of pressure on any crew. People generally get tired, they snap and sometimes when you are confined to a small space for hours on end (i.e. a car that is loaded to the roof with camera equipment) the last thing you want to do is see the people you are working with. But Chan Tau Chou and Lee Ali approached the long stressful days with humour, grace, professionalism and the ability to sleep in the most unusual locations (on top of windy rocky outcrops). Filming in the north-west was a whirlwind of driving long distances, climbing rocky terrain, rising at 4am and falling into bed at midnight with back-to-back interviews in between. I am excited to see the final product of Australia's boomtown curse. I think it is a story that people need to hear about.

Women in a tradesman's world A series about women in occupations that have been traditionally male dominated. Across the sector, women comprise only 4.5 per cent of technicians, 11.1 per cent of machinery operators and drivers, and 13 per cent of labourers.The figures are slightly better higher up the ranks, with women making up 14.8 per cent of key management personnel and 16.3 per cent of all managers.But it is a steep climb to the very top, with less than three per cent of chief executive officers in mining being female.On the remuneration front, the gender pay gap in mining is around seven per cent lower than any other Australian industry.WGEA's Jackie Woods said that trend is reflected at the management level with a pay gap of 7.4 per cent, compared to the national average of 27.2 per cent.Diversity at the coalfaceA program at the Mount Arthur Coal mine near Muswellbrook, now with its fifth generation of graduates, supports people from diverse backgrounds entering the industry.Mitch Parton, who oversaw the initiative's inception, said it was "designed to remove some of the old barriers"."Whether it be younger women who just weren't aware of what the mining industry entailed, weren't sure if they'd be able get into it, or people who have been out of work for a while," he said. "Internally, our reviews have shown that our most diverse operations outperform those that are less diverse."Mr Palmer also said there was a strong business case for boosting gender equality.Support along the wayCat Simmons has been in the mining industry for eight years, working her way up from a truck operator to an analysis and improvement specialist."I've always wanted to work in an industry that would challenge me while accept #changing, #face, #Australian, #mining, #women, #make, #inroads #mining, #women, #genderdiversity, #genderequality, #mountarthur, #coal, #paygap

[OEMF2017] Learnings from Aus. Mining Industry applied to In-Situ Resource Utilisation for Mars
20-21 September 2017 http://www.acser.unsw.edu.au/oemf2017 Tim Pelech UNSW Sydney Learnings from the Australian Mining Industry applied to the preparation of In-Situ Resource Utilisation systems for Mars The operational and planning techniques used on Australian mine sites have been developed over decades through the process of continuous improvement to overcome challenges, maximise value creation and minimise risks. The first In-Situ Resource Utilisation project on Mars is likely to exhibit unexpected challenges similar to those at any terrestrial mine. To be ready for these issues, more experience in the use of Mars ISRU systems is needed. Learnings from the mining industry can provide a foundation to develop ISRU systems and enhance value creation for a human mission to Mars. Some examples of industry learnings that can be applied include; mine capital development as a value driver, grade control procedures, ore fragmentation and processing cooperation and the operational use of gravity for excavation. With these learnings and others as a base, an ISRU system can be developed and prepared for the Martian mining environment. Timothy M Pelech graduated from the University of New South Wales in 2013 with First Class honours in Mine Engineering. He has industry experience in open pit and underground mine planning, drill and blast engineering, geotechnical monitoring, resource geology and several operational roles. His research interest areas include; In-Situ Resource utilisation for space exploration, Off-Earth resource extraction and processing systems, novel mining systems and mine optimisation.

Clive Palmer told the Australian people the 'Truth' that there definately is collusion between the United States' Central Intelligence Agency and the environmental lobby. Clive Palmer Quotes: "This is funded by the CIA," he said. "You only have to go back and read ... the report to the US Congress that sets up the Rockefeller Foundation as a conduit of CIA funding." "You only have to look at the secret budget which was passed by Congress last year - bigger than our whole national economy - with the CIA to ensure that." "You only have to read the reports to US Congress where the CIA reported to the president that their role was to ensure the US competitive advantage - that's how you know it's funded by the CIA."

The Future of Trucking
Imagining the future of the vast trucking industry that will become autonomous in the coming years. Subscribe for our newest TDC original mini-documentary: http://bit.ly/2pu8oNz Video by Bryce Plank and Robin West. More information on this topic: The future of trucking: http://tcrn.ch/2f1cx2Z http://bit.ly/2pyRU2K Tesla's electric truck: http://bit.ly/2nKwlQi Platooning: http://bit.ly/2eg8UKi Truckers discuss the future of trucking: http://bit.ly/2oG2MM9 Script: The semi-truck. Our modern lives are completely dependent on them. Look around you. Every object you see probably traveled on at least one big rig. Here in America, truckers make up 2% of the workforce. But with multiple game-changing technologies converging simultaneously — and the relentlessness of the hyper-competitive global marketplace — the industry will be revolutionized within the next two decades. This is an examination of the future of trucking. Before we get into the technology that will turn it all upside-down, we must first understand the way this extremely fragmented industry works now. To the numbers! There are about 3 million drivers for 2.5 million trucks in the US. Those trucks are owned by 532,000 carrier companies, but 90% of these fleets have fewer than six trucks—and half of all carriers are single individuals who own and operate their own rig. Then you have the middlemen, the freight brokers. These 13,000 companies play matchmaker between the manufacturers and wholesalers (who are trying to get their goods to market) and the retailers (who make the final sale to the consumer). Because this industry is so splintered, there aren’t universal software systems tying it all together. In fact, 67% of shippers don’t use software at all and rely solely on paper records—in 2017! This creates tremendous inefficiency. When every piece of information has to be communicated through human interactions, drivers are frequently forced to wait hours to book or pick-up a load. And sometimes they just don’t, an estimated 20% of trucks on the road are empty. To solve these problems, investors are spending hundreds of millions of dollars on startups competing to develop the silver bullet, a software layer that can be used by every segment of the industry. Another area ripe for modernization is how trucks are powered. Today, medium and heavy duty trucks account for 6% of the greenhouse gas emissions produced in America. To their credit, companies like Walmart are looking to transition to fleets powered by cleaner natural gas, the bridge fuel America has embraced to transition to renewables. That’s where Tesla comes in. Elon Musk, CEO of the electric car manufacturer, plans to unveil an electric-powered semi-truck in the next six months. Battery range will be the biggest obstacle to the widespread adoption of electric trucks as Tesla’s pack will probably only have a 200-300 mile range. The other challenge will be having enough charging stations — and enough power available at each station — to support fleets of Tesla trucks. The Nikola One attempts to overcome these limitations. This gorgeous, hydrogen fuel cell truck will have a range up to 1,200 miles. The young company plans to begin leasing their trucks by 2020 for about $6,000 a month — including the cost of fuel — but it will first need to build a network of about 400 charging stations throughout the country. Cutting the emissions of semi-trucks is great for the environment, but the real cost-saving opportunity lies in cutting out the drivers. It’s been more than a year now since six convoys of semi-autonomous “smart” trucks arrived at the Netherlands port city of Rotterdam after leaving factories from as far away as Sweden and Southern Germany. That experiment relied on a system called platooning, a semi-autonomous feature allowing trucks to find each other, link up, and draft to cut down on wind drag, saving energy—just like in NASCAR or the Tour de France. And in October, a self-driving truck completed the first commercial shipment by an autonomous vehicle, delivering a load of Budweiser more than 120 miles across Colorado. A human got the truck on the highway and engaged the autonomous system, then climbed out of the driver’s seat. That truck was made by Otto motors, which was recently acquired by Uber. And dozens of massive, 240-ton trucks are already being used in Australian mines. So that’s the near-future we’ll see in the next 10 years: fleets of driverless trucks. Some will be designed to be autonomous, while others will have the system installed later. Many will be electric, and nearly all will be connected to efficient networks that are not slowed down by frequent human input.

Elon Musk says Australia’s energy emergency is easily fixable - Part one | 60 Minutes Australia
It’s been a miserable few weeks for Malcolm Turnbull’s government, stalled by myriad cock-ups and controversies. But the greatest challenge it faces continues to be Australia’s crisis over energy supply and cost. Who hasn’t been shocked by a recent electricity or gas bill? And who isn’t infuriated that power prices have risen so sharply? In a country as abundant with resources as ours it defies logic that there are now some Australians who can’t even pay for the electricity or gas to cook a simple meal. While federal – and state – politicians scramble to act, Elon Musk, the American billionaire with the brilliant mind, says he wants to help. In an exclusive interview with Liz Hayes, Musk says Australia’s energy emergency is easily fixable, and his construction of the world’s largest lithium ion battery at Jamestown in South Australia is proof.

Zero-Carbon Energy for the Asia-Pacific
Research into a new export industry to deliver cheap, clean energy for Australia and the region has received $10 million in funding as part of The Australian National University’s Grand Challenges program. The Grand Challenge Scheme invests in transformative research to make the impossible possible. In its second year, the scheme seeks to bring new perspectives to the most pressing challenges facing society. The Zero-Carbon for Energy for the Asia-Pacific project will catalyse the development of a major renewable energy export industry from the ground up: building the infrastructure, exploring the trade relationships, developing the policy frameworks to get Australia’s abundant renewable energy resources cheaply and reliably to our Asia-Pacific neighbours. It will be developed under two key themes, by exporting Australian renewable electricity, and the creation of renewable electricity capability in the Asia-Pacific and by the development of zero-carbon embedded energy products made using Australian renewable energy.
