Halifax Investment Services Pty Ltd (In Liquidation)

Morgan Kelly, Stewart McCallum and Phil Quinlan were appointed Administrators of the Company on 23 November 2018 pursuant to Section 436A of the Corporation Act 2001 (Act).

At the second meeting of creditors held on 20 March 2019, creditors resolved that the Company be wound up pursuant to Section 439C(c) of the Corporations Act 2001 and that the Administrators be appointed as Liquidators of the Company.

Extension of the convening period

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 copy of the sealed order and a circular to creditors providing further information have also been posted to the Ferrier Hodgson website and may be accessed via the hyperlinks below.
