The Federal Court of Australia has today delivered judgment in ASIC's civil penalty proceedings against Vocation Ltd (In Liquidation) and its officers, Mark Hutchinson (former CEO), John Dawkins (former Chairman), and Manvinder Gréwal (former CFO) - The Court found Vocation Ltd contravened: section 1041H(1) of the Corporations Act by making misleading and deceptive statements to the ASX and UBS AG Australia in a 25 August ASX announcement and in a due diligence questionnaire (DDQ) the latter formed the basis for a placement in September 2014 which raised approximately $74m from investors (the September 2014 Placement), and its continuous disclosure obligations under section 674(2) by not disclosing to the market the actions taken by the former DEECD in July and August 2014 when it suspended all payments to Vocation. Further the Court found that Mr Hutchinson and Mr Dawkins contravened section 180 of the Act by causing or permitting Vocation's contravention of section 674(2) of the Act. Mr Hutchinson contravened section 180 of the Act by causing or permitting Vocation's contravention of section 1041H in relation to the 25 August Announcement and the DDQ. Mr Gréwal contravened section 180 of the Act by causing or permitting Vocation's contravention of section 1041H in relation to the DDQ.

Investors would have to be crazy to buy Vocation shares. 1. They have been caught out by ASQA for rorting the training system. @0 million lost. 2. Regulation is tightening that will limit the capacity of private RTO's to milk students and course delivery. 3. An impending Labor Government will initiate further investigations that may see a collapse of numerous Private RTO's. Sell! Sell! Sell!10/11/2014 11:53:49
