How much money will I get?
In the Notice of General Meeting provided to shareholders on 1 November 2019, it was estimated the interim distribution would be approximately $0.88 - $0.94 per share. It is now expected, but not guaranteed, that the interim distribution will be approximately $1.08 - $1.11 per share. This improvement is primarily the result of the favorable movement of the US Dollar to Australian Dollar exchange rate and the Company's recent conversion of a significant amount of cash from US Dollars to Australian Dollars, which are now on deposit in an Australia.
At the end of the voluntary winding up, if there is any surplus of cash after the liquidator has paid all of the liquidation costs, that surplus will be distributed to OneMarket shareholders via a final distribution.
Returns are subject to the following:
- Whether the Liquidator will be able to sell any of OneMarket's remaining assets during the Voluntary Winding up and for what consideration;
- Whether there will be any currently unanticipated / uncertain liabilities;
- How long the Voluntary Winding up process will take and how much it will cost; and
- Whether the expected Liquidation costs will truly reflect the actual costs for the Voluntary Winding Up process.
When will I get my interim distribution?
It is expected that the interim distribution will be made to shareholders within 5-6 months after the General Meeting held on 2 December 2019. Timing of the interim distribution is reliant on relevant statutory taxation clearances first being received, the timing of which is not yet certain.
When will the liquidators be paid and how much will they be paid?
The liquidators will only be paid once they have presented to shareholders a remuneration report pursuant to the Insolvency Practice Rules, which will contain significant detail on the tasks undertaken by the liquidators, the cost and the impact on likely returns from the windup. Shareholders will have the opportunity to review details of and approve the liquidators' specified remuneration prior to payment. The exact remuneration amounts are not yet known, but the resolution approved by shareholders appointing the liquidators was subject to the remuneration not exceeding US$250,000 (plus GST and disbursements) - or approximately US$0.002 (0.2 cents) per OneMarket share.
