I heard that B and B Ltd where paying a dividend ta the end of the year. Is that correct

Just highlights the poor quality of ASIC\'s laws. My Parents are still waiting for their money after all these years. I think taking legal action against these directors for loss of interest on the money is appropriate. I hope the class action includes this measure because after all directors have to be prepared for collapse or administration. The Risk assessment Laws provide for that purpose.

Have a Nice Day

Perhaps ASIC itself might be liable.

Was this our Lehman Bros, ?17/06/2014 14:45:23
hey i am a note holder I could not afford to pay the $400.oo to delloittes fot the legal cost but offered to pay it from the settlement funds but NO was the answer instead they payed the note holders who contributed 10times the $400 and paid me nothing . How can you investing in companies with this type of legal outcome. Delloittes this was very hard earnt money it came from the sale of our small family farm Refer this Comment to Billy Wong Delloitties. Shame 12/09/2013 10:35:37
it appears to me that the legal action against these criminals was in favour of the noteholders, not some creditor who crept out of the shadows when they smelt money, they did not fund the legal expenses that the noteholders paid for, how does that seem possible, this fiasco could go on forever as long as more creditors turn up at our expense, wake up delloitte and do your job properly obviously the longer it runs you will bleed it till its dead big buisness in this beautiful country stinks19/11/2012 11:35:58
Disgusting how this company let investors funds dissolve. It just happens too often where the people at the top go unpunished for bad investing/ management but still load their pockets by taking advantage of other peoples hard earned monies. They still get bonuses and pay rises at will. We battlers place trust in money hungers bastards who continue care little except themselves. We hope one day there will be a law to make people accountable for their actions as I'm sure if someone from the GENERAL public did business like these people they would be in front of the courts to answer.28/08/2012 17:13:19
