Timing and quantum of the initial preference liquidation dividend to the Company’s Series A Preferred Shareholders
Under the Company’s constitutional documents, the Company’s Series A Preferred Shareholders are entitled to receive:
i. a preference dividend in a liquidation of $25 per share; and
ii. accrued but unpaid dividends in a liquidation prior to payments to other shareholders.
The Funds available for distribution to shareholders of the Company will be paid to holders of the Company’s Series A Preferred Shares in priority to the Company’s common shareholders to the extent described above.
The initial distribution to the Company’s Series A Preferred Shareholders will total approximately $31.5 million. This equates to $10.50 for each Series A Preferred Share of the Company.
This preference dividend is payable on July 28, 2008 to the holders of Series A Preferred Stock of record on the books of the Company at the close of business on July 17, 2008.
5. Estimated timing of further dividends to the Company’s Series A Preferred
This initial distribution to the Company’s Series A Preferred Shareholders represents a distribution of substantially all of the assets of the Company.
However, the Company still has a small number of contingent assets which may result in further realizations for the estate in the future. Depending on the outcome of the realisation efforts, an additional distribution to the Company’s preferred shareholders may be made prior to the formal dissolution of the Company.
It is anticipated that any further distributions to Series A Preferred Shareholders will occur within 12 months, although the exact timing and the quantum of any further distribution is uncertain.
