BACKGROUND

The company provided Investment Advisory Services in Several Countries including, but not limited to, Introductory Brokerage Services, General Consulting Services, Financial Consulting Services, Financial Analysis, Financial Structuring and Investment Banking.

 

STATEMENT OF AFFAIRS

The company had offices located in seven countries and all information was gathered and centralized to be reviewed by the Liquidator as per the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th liquidation reports.

The priority of the Liquidator has been returning creditors their claimed amount as quickly as possible and trying to obtain assurances from the Bank regarding the repayment of such amounts without incurring any procedural risks for Creditors during such process. In any liquidation of this magnitude and complexity such repayments and the subsequent completion of a liquidation of this type could take months or in some cases even years. Steps were taken to ensure that all creditors who put forward valid claims were being paid 100% of the value of their claim in the shortest time possible and that no deviations were or could be taken by any parties when the process was implemented.

To assist with this aim, the Liquidator has aided to establish an independent vehicle in the form of a Trust that will be managed by Creditors and a Trustee. Assets are settled on the trust in a higher proportion of the value of the claimed amounts. The Trust was registered in the Commonwealth of Dominica under the name “CCS Liquidation Trust INC” with Incorporation Number (2018/C0238). All creditors that have submitted a valid ACF and an A1 Formats and who are not on the Bank´s Legal Action Watch List are being paid 100 cents on the dollar (in full) by the vehicle. Assets deposited in the Trust are, according to the valuation available, valued at more than double the initial estimation of liabilities of the partnership as published in the previous reports and the land rights will be in control of the Trust.
