Controversial ticket seller to be wound up

Partners from Wilkins Kennedy appointed as joint special managers

Getmetickets.net, the company which resold tickets for ‘sold out’ sporting
and musical events at extremely high prices, has been placed in provisional
liquidation following calls from the Department of Trade and Industry for the
company to be wound up in the public interest.

The company is now under the control of the Official Receiver who will go to
court on 22 March to seek a winding-up order.

Colin Wiseman and Simon Underwood, partners at Wilkins Kennedy, have been
appointed as joint special managers by the court to deal with the distribution
of tickets according to the terms of the provisional liquidation.

They will also sell any unallocated tickets.
