Creditor, GE Commercial, appointed receivers Quentin Olde, Andrew Schwarz and Michael Ryan of Taylor Woodings to Synergy Plus Operations, the main operating subsidiary.
According to creditor’s meeting documents sighted by ARN , there were three available options to consider including that the company be wound up, returned to the director or entered into a Deed of Company Arrangement.
Administrator, David Ross, told ARN it recommended the main operating entity, Synergy Plus Operations to be put into liquidation.
“We recommend a majority of the Deeds although one of them [Synergy Plus Operations] we recommend liquidation,” he said. “The Deed of Company Arrangement has been proposed and there has some discrepancies between asset realisation between what the deed anticipated, and what receivers and managers have anticipated. The directors have sought for the meeting to be adjourned.”
