In this post-recession climate a growing number of entrepreneurs are considering buying up distressed businesses, capitalising on any opportunity they find and often adding valuable assets to existing portfolios. The key to making the most of these opportunities is finding them at the right time.

Winding-up petitions
A winding-up petition

For anyone looking to buy a business, keeping abreast of any winding-up petitions issued is a shrewd strategy, as these notices are an indicator that a business may be heading for insolvency. Firms in this situation can offer great opportunities for investors.

A typical example of the window of opportunity winding-up petitions present can be seen with Fixit Reinforcement Limited, a steel reinforcement subcontractor, which had a winding-up petition lodged against it at the courts on the 10th of November 2011 and later fell into administration on the 9th of March 2012.
