As foreshadowed at the first meeting of creditors and having regard to the complexities associated with this matter, an extension of the convening period for the second meeting of creditors for the Company was granted by the Federal Court of Australia on 12 December 2018. The effect of this is that the second meeting of creditors must be convened by 29 March 2019 and will be held on or before 5 April 2019. A report to creditors dealing the investigations undertaken by the Administrators will be issued to all known creditors of the Company at least five business days prior to the second meeting of creditors.

We note however, that a report may be issued and a meeting held prior to these dates in circumstances where our investigations are sufficiently progressed to allow this.

A copy of the sealed order and a circular to creditors providing further information have also been posted to the Ferrier Hodgson website.
