company in a court-supervised, compulsory scheme of arrangement
Explanation:
lit. that has summoned a creditors' meeting.

Compulsory is meant to denote a creditor's petition. Voluntary would be a petition by the co. itself.

Scheme of arrangement subsumes a meeeting of creditors - but a co. can hardly be in such a meeting.

Butterworths SPA>ENG law dict. gives a long-winded explanation using questionable insolvency terms: 'petition to call creditors' meeting (before a judge, by a (judgment?) debtor's creditor, for the purpose of forestalling a (the?) debtor's bankruptcy'. As a consequence..., the creditors will vote on a plan .. to extend (reschedule?) the payment periods and lower level of payments. Upon an affirmative vote (vote in favo(u)r?), the plan (scheme?) must be approved by the court.'

  -> Interesting US info. The whole point of a scheme in the UK - and of convocataria according to Butterworths - is to fend off and avert an insolvency/bankruptcy scenario,
