3-4 South Square has emerged as the one of the winners in today’s crucial court battle between MyTravel and its bondholders.
The decision of UK High Court today means that MyTravel’s restructuring can go ahead in the teeth of opposition from the bondholders, a decision which could significant repercussions for bondholder activism.
