Background information

Simon Wallace-Smith and Robert Woods were appointed Provisional Liquidators of the eight companies and five schemes by the Federal Court of Australia and subsequently Liquidators of same on 10 March 2016.

Provisional liquidation information

Deloitte's role as Provisional Liquidators in relation to each of the Companies and Schemes was to:

  • Identify and take control of any assets
  • Determine the nature and value of their respective liabilities
  • Conduct investigations regarding their affairs
  • Determine whether it appears that they are insolvent
  • Determine the most appropriate manner of realising any assets
  • Provide a report to the Court regarding the above.

These Reports were filed with the Court in December 2015.

The Court is currently considering the Reports. Until the Reports are considered by the Court, we are unable to provide any specific information to investors regarding their investment and likelihood of any return. 

The matter is listed to be heard by the Court on 10 March 2016. We ask that investors be patient in the interim.
