of the company’s financial position and to ensure that it can continue to
operate, and to ensure the best interests of customers and creditors are
served.’

The purpose of the Administration Order is to seek to ensure the best long
term solution can be adopted for customers and creditors, and whilst doing so,
continuing the operations of the company.’
