Orford Refrigeration Pty Ltd (In Liquidation)

Formerly trading as "Orford Refrigeration" and "Orford Sign Shop"
("Orford Refrigeration")

We refer to our Report to Creditors dated 10 May 2011 and now provide creditors with an update
on the winding up to date.

1.1 We advise that the meeting of creditors for the abovenamed company will be held at the
Downs Room, Burke & Wills Hotel, 554 Ruthven Street, Toowoomba Qld 4350 on 31
October 2011 at l1:OOam.

• Notice of Meeting;
• Form 532 - AppOintment of Proxy; and

1.3 You do not have to attend this meeting and your non-attendance will not affect the

1.5 If you have not already done so, please complete the attached Proof of Debt Form (Form

1.6 It is important that the completed Proxy Form and the Formal Proof of Debt Form

can be done by facsimile, post or delivery and will minimise any delay with the
commencement of the meeting.
2. BACKGROUND INFORMATION
2.1. History of the Company
2.1.1 As previously advised in our report to creditors dated 10 May 2011, the company
operated as a manufacturer of commercial refrigeration products. The business operated
by the company spanned four generations and had its origins in 1922 from its current
premises located at 75 Vacy Street, Toowoomba, Queensland.
5
pilaf?
2.1.2 The company was incorporated on 23 June 1969 as Orford Pty Ltd and subsequently
changed its name to Orford Refrigeration Pty Ltd on 19 July 2000. We are advised that
Ian Orford acquired John Orford's share of the business in 2001.
2.1.3 Orford Refrigeration Pty Ltd became the trustee for the Orford Family Trust on 1 July
1977. The trust deed was varied on 30 April 2003 to remove Orford Refrigeration Pty Ltd
as trustee and appoint Commercial Icemakers Pty Ltd as the new Trustee.
2.1.4 The current directors, Corby and Liam Orford, commenced work in the family business in
2002 and were both appointed as directors of the company on 19 September 2008 when
they acquired a majority stake in the business from their late father.
2.1.5 Both Corby and Liam Orford have controlled the company's affairs since September 2008.
2.1.6 Prior to being appointed as the managing director, Corby Orford held a number of
positions in the business, including human resources manager, operations manager and
sales manager. Liam Orford held the positions of the information technology manager
and Orford Sign Shop general manager prior to being appointed as the executive director.
2.2 Orford Sign Shop ("Sign Shop")
2.2.1 Orford Refrigeration also carried on a sign business under the business name "Orford Sign
Shop" which produced vinyl decals and performed screen printing services from the Vacy
Street premises. Its operations ceased along with those of Orford Refrigeration upon our
appointment. While the Sign Shop's main business was producing decals for the
company's refrigeration cabinets, work was also sourced beyond the company with the
Sign Shop producing vinyl decals, transfer prints and promotional street and building
signage for both regular and one-off customers.
2.2.2 Our review of the companys' books and records indicate that the Sign Shop had been
successful in securing the business of a number of significant customers including
Cad bury Schweppes, Coca Cola Amatil and Wanless, in addition to Orford Refrigeration
itself.
2.2.3 The Sign Shop was not accounted for separately in the company's books and records. Our
investigations show that there was an intention to account separately for the Sign Shop's
activities, but this was never implemented. The Sign Shop did not hold a significant
amount of assets and utilised a relatively small number of employees in its operations.
Due to the scale of the business and the inherent complications of its accounting records,
we do not intend to reconstruct the accounts of the Sign Shop.
2.3 Changes in Company Officers and Members
2.3.1 A search with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission ("ASIC") reveals the
following past and present directors of the company:

changed its name to lM Realty Pty Ltd on 4 January 2007. Liam and Corby Orford are the
sole directors of this company which owns the land at 75 Vacy Street from which Orford
Refrigeration operated. We note that there is a significant inter-company loan between
Orford Refrigeration and lM Realty, which is discussed further in section 5.4 of this report.
2.3.4 Chilimint Pty Ltd ("Chilimint")
Chilimint was incorporated on 19 September 2008. Liam and Corby Orford are both
directors and have equal shareholdings.

Cash on Hand
The directors disclosed cash on hand of $5,100 as at the date of our appointment. We
recovered $652.50 from various petty cash tins at the company premises and $1,000
from a sales employee being the balance of their float.
(ii) Cash at Bank
As at the date of our appointment the company held a bank account with Westpac
Banking Corporation Limited ("Westpac") with a credit balance of $367,413.18. The
account was frozen shortly after our appointment.
Our review of the bank statements reveal that $362,600 of the funds in the bank account
were drawn from the company's debtor finance facility with Westpac prior to the
liquidation. Westpac holds a fixed charge over this facility and has applied the full balance
of this account against facilities it has with the company.
(iii) Debtors
As at the date of our appointment, the company's books and records show debtors of
$4,615,913. Below is a summary of the results of our realisations to date:

Factored Unfactored Total

Total debtors per company's records 4,436,043 179,870 4,615,913

Offsets/Adjustments 854,160 3,308 857,468
Balance due 590,664 89,656 680!320
A number of the company's former staff were retained by the Liquidators to assist with
the collection of the company's debtors and maintain the company's accounting system.
We have encountered difficulties with the collection of some debtors given the company is
not in a position to honour its warranty obligations. Unreasonable or difficult debtors have
been referred to either a debt collection agency or our solicitors for further action. We will
continue to pursue the outstanding debtors.
The debtor finance facility with Westpac has now been repaid in full. The bank is of the
view that the remaining factored debtors, which were effectively sold to the bank
pursuant to the debtor facility agreement are to be paid to the bank to offset other
facilities it has with the company.
(iv) Related Party Loans
The company's records reveal the following related party loans as owing to the company
as at 31 March 2011:
Related Party Amount

Ian Orford (deceased) 184282

Dean Orford 22471
Liam Orford 24894
Total Related Party Loans $4,128,593
These loans are discussed in further detail at section 5.4 of this report.
(v) Plant & Equipment
The directors disclosed the company owned plant & equipment with a book value of
$3,979,100, consisting of a wide range of manufacturing and assembly equipment, office
furniture and equipment and motor vehicles.
GraysOnline ("GraysOnline") have been engaged as our agent to assist with the asset
realisation process. Gross sale proceeds of $1,581,403 have been received by our office to
11
pilaf?
date. We anticipate further proceeds from future auctions to be forthcoming over the next
two months.
All proceeds from sale of the company's plant and equipment are subject to the fixed and
floating charge held by Westpac.
(vi) Stock/Finished Goods on Hand
The directors disclosed stock on hand with a book value of $5,810,230 as at the date of
our appointment. A stocktake was undertaken shortly after our appointment to ascertain
the value of stock and finished goods on hand.
We note that a significant portion of the stock on hand was subject to retention of title
claims by creditors. We have undertaken a review of all claims and where valid, have
facilitated the identification and collection of encumbered stock. There remains one
retention of title claim which is yet to be settled. This claim is currently with our solicitors.
Transport companies holding a significant portion of finished goods at their storage depots
around Australia have claimed a lien over goods held for debts owing to them. We have
reviewed the supporting documentation provided to ascertain the validity of the lien claim.
Realisation of these goods will commence in due course with an accounting of the sale
proceeds to be provided to ou r office.
To date we have realised $320,736.64 from finished goods and $172,822 from stock.
Further realisations from finished goods and stock are expected over the next three to
four months.
(vii) Work in Progress
The company's work in progress consists of partially finished refrigeration units. The
directors disclosed work in progress with a book value of $23,260 as at the date of our
appointment.
GraysOnline have been selling these items as spare parts along with the stock on hand
discussed above.
(viii) Shares in Subsidiaries
The directors did not disclose shares held by the company in their RATAs, however our
investigations of the company's financial accounts and searches at ASIC reveal that the
company holds shares in the following subsidiaries:
Entity No. of Shares 0/0 of Shares
Held Held
Orford Bros Pty Ltd 1000 100%
Orford Sales Pty Ud 1000 100%
Orford NZ Pty Ltd (incorporated in New Zealand) 7 70%
The current value of the shares held are unknown, however due to some of the companies
being dormant with limited realisable assets (refer to section 2.5 above), we expect the
value of these shares to be minimal, if any.
12
pilof7
(ix) Intellectual Property (nIP")
The company's intellectual property was sold to a related entity, Roderick Abif Pty Ltd,
prior to the company being placed into liquidation. Please refer section 5.5 of this report
for further information.
(x) Assets Specifically Charged
The directors have indicated assets specifically charged of $9,054,835, however they have
not indicated which asset classes this relates to. We understand the majority of this
amount relates to the debtors financed by Westpac and plant and equipment subject to
specific finance agreements with Westpac.
(xi) Secured Creditors
Westpac holds two fixed and floating charges and various fixed charges over the assets of
the company. As at the date of our appointment, Westpac was owed $8,056,277. The
bank's fixed portion of their charge receives priority to the claims of employee and
unsecured creditors.
At this stage it appears that there are insufficient assets to satisfy the bank's charge in
full.
It should be noted that Section 561 of the Act affords employee claims employee claims a
priority over floating charge realisations (Le. unfactored debtors and stock).
(xii) Employee Entitlements
Employee claims are afforded priority over claims by unsecured creditors pursuant to
Section 556 of the Corporations Act 2001 ("the Act").
As at the date of our appointment the company employed approximately 180 staff. The
company ceased to employ staff as at the date of our appointment. A summary of the
outstanding entitlements owing to employees as at the date of our appointment and
entitlements paid by GEERS to employees is below:
Company's Paid by Balance
Employee Entitlements Records GEERS Owing
$ $ $
Wages 125,004 105,089 19,915
Superannuation 199,219 Nil 199,219
Annual Leave (incl leave loading) 457,345 401,393 55,952
Payment in Lieu of Notice 404,196 354,312 49,884
Redundancy 983,361 877,887 105,474
Long Service Leave 514,878 484,736 30,142
Total 2,684,003 2,223,417 460,586
The above does not include employee entitlements owing to the directors, Corby and Liam
Orford. We understand both directors were remunerated by Orford Bros Pty Ltd as Trustee
for the Orford Logistics Trust.
13
p i l o ~
We note that redundancy claims of some employees were partly or wholly rejected by
GEERS as apprentices are excluded from receiving redu ndancies and employees with no
employment contracts were assessed in accordance with the National Employment
Standards (NES) which does not provide for redundancy entitlements.
Pursuant to Section 556 of the Act, unpaid superannuation is afforded the same priority
as unpaid wages. The Deputy of Commissioner of Taxation is yet to submit a claim in
regard to unpaid superannuation and the superannuation guarantee charge. We have
however forwarded the relevant details to the ATO so they may lodge a claim. It should
be noted that should sufficient funds become available to enable a dividend to priority
unsecured creditors, any payment made to the ATO in respect of superannuation will be
distributed by the ATO to the relevant superannuation funds.
At this stage, it is uncertain if there will be a return to employees.
(xiii) Unsecured Creditors
There are presently 321 claims by unsecured creditors for debts totalling $12,292,870, as
follows:
Trade Creditors
Related Entities
Total Unsecured Creditors
$9,230,297
$3,062,574
$12,292,870
The exact amount due to unsecured creditors will not be determined until such time as all
creditors have lodged their Proof of Debt in the administration, and we have completed
the process of adjudication.
A list is attached as Appendix A.
4. BOOKS AND RECORDS OF THE COMPANY
4.1 We have obtained a significant amount of the company's books and records from the
directors and the company's offices and have conducted investigations into the trade
dealings and affairs of the company and its officers.
4.2 The company uses a system called MFG Pro, which we have been advised is a common
program for manufacturing businesses. Whilst this system is beneficial for the
manufacturing aspect of the business, its accounting capabilities are somewhat
cumbersome. The system is not user-friendly and has made extracting information for the
purposes of our investigations somewhat protracted.
4.3 We have gained remote access to the company's server and system at the Orford
premises however the server which the system operates from is subject to a retention of
title claim by a creditor. We are currently looking into options available to retain access to
the system until such time as our investigations are finalised.

• transactions with related party, which may be void; and
• possible offences and breaches of duty by the company's officers.
• Convened and held a meeting of creditors in Toowoomba.
• Liaised with parties interested in the company's intellectual property, in the event the
sale to Roderick Abif Pty Ltd is void.
• Lodgement of all statutory documents and notices regarding the administration.
5.2 Liquidators' Investigations to Date
5.2.1 A report has been lodged with ASIC in accordance with Section 533 of the Act which
outlines the offences that may have been committed by the company's officers. We are
yet to receive ASIC's response.

5.2.2 If any creditor is aware of matters relating to the past dealings of the company that may
assist us in our investigations, it would be appreciated if they would contact either Ms Liz
Yang or Mr Cameron Woodcroft of this office to discuss these matters further.
5.3 Reasons for the Company's Failure
5.3.1 As previously advised, the directors have identified the decline in orders and the effects of
the Global Financial Crisis as being the key factors which have led to company's failure.
5.3.2 We believe the main reasons for the company's failure:
• Inadequate cash flow as goods manufactured were either generating minimal margins
or were produced at a loss. From our review of the company's records, the costs to
produce exceeded the selling prices of several models of cabinets.
• Poor economic conditions as a result of the global financial crisis.
• The significant reduction in orders from the company's major customer, Coca Cola
Amatil ("Coca Cola").
• Strong competition from cheaper import units from China. As Orford's labour and
manufacturing costs were higher, the prices of Orford goods were significantly higher
than imported goods.
5.3.3 The company's available financial statements reflect that the increasing trading losses
significantly eroded the company's position. In 2006 the company had net assets of
$10,717,397.

5.4.2 Our investigations are continuing in regard to these related party loans.
5.5 Sale of Intellectual Property
5.5.1 The company's intellectual property consists primarily of both registered and unregistered
patents, trademarks, business names, domain names, drawings and research and
development information.
18
p i l o ~
5.5.2 On 5 May 2011, the day prior to our appointment, the company's directors entered into a
contract to sell its IP to a related entity, Roderick Abif Pty Ltd ("Roderick Abif
U
). The
directors of Roderick Abif are Corby and Liam Orford.
5.5.3 The IP is an asset of the company which is subject to Westpac's fixed and floating charge.
We note before any of the IP can be sold or transferred to another party, Westpac's
consent and release of its security will be required. We do not believe consent has been
sought from the secured creditor.
5.5.4 The agreement provided that the purchase price was to be determined by a valuation
undertaken by an independent valuer, with the purchase price to be paid over a 2 year
period.
5.5.5 The valuation has now been completed on the assumption that:
• no supply agreement with Coca Cola Amatil is agreed; and
• the Intellectual Property Licence Agreement with Skope Australia Pty Ltd is excluded.
5.5.6 We have conducted searches at IP Australia of the patents, trademarks and designs which
were subject to the IP sale agreement between Orford Refrigeration and Roderick Abif.
Full details are attached as Appendix B.
5.5.7 Our searches at IP Australia also revealed a number of patents and trademarks which
were not subject to the IP sale agreement between Orford Refrigeration and Roderick
Abif. Please refer to Table 2 of Appendix B.
5.5.8 Our solicitors have advised that the agreement to sell the IP is likely to be an
uncommercial transaction which may be capable of being voided.
5.6 The Company's Activities in China
5.6.1 Our investigations show that Orford Refrigeration has been actively investigating potential
business partners in China since at least April 2006. We have located a report from this
time where unidentified Orford Refrigeration representatives visited at least five different
suppliers of a variety of components including coils, toughened glass, refrigeration
packages and vacuum forming supply and tooling.
5.6.2 Company records from November 2008 show that the company's management had
lengthy discussions regarding importing refrigeration packages from China. At this time,
the board decided that these units should continue to be manufactured in-house. We note
that this decision follows on from legal disputes with a supplier of Chinese-manufactured
refrigeration packages over product quality.
5.6.3 Company records show that Corby Orford intended to travel to China in mid-March 2011
to visit a factory producing food service units. The records indicate that it was planned to
import the units to Australia under the Orford branding. From the records analysed, it is
unclear whether this trip took place.
19
pilaf?
5.6.4 Records indicate that in August 2010, January 2011 and April 2011 the company had
contacted companies in China and Thailand with intentions to visit their factories and
discuss the supply of various components and refrigeration units.
5.6.5 Our investigations have revealed that in April 2011, several large payments totalling
$80,000 were made to a Chinese manufacturer, Qingdao Haili Commercial Appliances Co.,
Limited ("Haili"). The eVidence in our possession indicates that these payments were for
tooling costs for 31 Coca Cola-specification cabinets. We are continuing to look into the
circumstances surrounding these transactions.
5.6.6 Records also show payments made by the company in April 2011 to Mr Peter Norman,
Corby Orford's husband, as part of a trip he made to China. Correspondence from Mr
Norman between 29 April 2011 and 5 May 2011 discuss the production of refrigeration
cabinets by Haili and enclose pictures of a new factory and refrigeration cabinets under
construction.
5.6.7 In a circular sent by the Orford Group in August 2011, it is noted that "The Orford Group
has accomplished the final set up of their new factory venture in China."
5.6.8 Our investigations into the company's activities in China prior to our appointment will
continue.
5.7 Maureen Orford
5.7.1 Our investigations have revealed that numerous payments totalling $200,000 were made
to Maureen Orford in the weeks leading up to the company being placed into liquidation:

pu rsuant to section 588FE of the Act.
5.7.3 Subsequent to the demand being issued, our review of the company's bank statements
have revealed further payments totaling $23,000 were made in November and December
2010 to Maureen Orford. Our investigations are continuing to determine whether these
payments are also void and recoverable.
5.8 Chilimint Pty Ltd ("Chilimint")
5.8.1 The directors of Chilimint are Corby and Liam Orford.

as well as the above transactions.
5.8.4 We have not located any loan documentation in the company's records or amounts
deposited to or withdrawn from the company's bank accounts which support these
transactions.
5.8.5 Our investigations are ongoing as to basis of the loan and the transactions entered into
just prior to liquidation to determine whether they may be considered uncommercial
pursuant to section 588FB of the Act and recoverable by a liqUidator.
5.9 Orford Bros pty Ltd ATF Orford Logistics Trust ("Orford Bros")
5.9.1 Orford Bros is a wholly owned subsidiary of Orford Refrigeration which we have been
advised has been dormant for quite some time. Orford Bros also the Trustee for the
Orford Logistics Trust.
5.9.2 A review of the company's bank statements indicate that between November 2010 and
May 2011 regular payments exceeding $100,000, and totalling approximately $3.5
million, were paid to Orford Bros.
5.9.3 We have been advised however that these payments are not reflected in the bank
account of Orford Bros. We have requested the Bank trace the destination of these
payments. Our investigations into this matter are continuing.
5.9.4 Our investigations indicate that Corby and Liam Orford received salaries from Orford Bros
up to the financial year ended 30 June 2010.
5.9.5 We are aware that Liam, Corby and Maureen Orford resigned as directors of Orford Bros
Pty Ltd on 4 August 2011.
5.9.6 The company's March 2011 management accounts reflect a loan owing to the trust of
$256,625.
5.9.7 Our investigations are continuing in regard to the basiS of the loan and recipients of the
payments made to Orford Bros.

5.10. Unfair Preferences (Section S88FA)
5.10.1. An unfair preference is received by a creditor of a company if:
(a) by entering into a transaction the creditor receives more from the company than
they would receive if the transaction was set aside and the creditor was to prove for
their debt in the winding up of the company, and
(b) the transaction was entered into at a time when the company is insolvent or as a
result of entering into the transaction becomes insolvent.
5.10.2. A Liquidator is able to recover unfair preferences received by creditors during the six
month period (four years if the payment was made to a related entity) ending on the
relation back date.
5.10.3. We have conducted a review of the transactions entered into by the company during the
six month period prior to the relation back day, being 6 May 2011.
5.10.4. Based on the records available to us, we have identified potential transactions totaling
$2,637,000 which may constitute unfair preferences. Further investigation is required
before we are in a position to issue demands in respect of these transactions and assess
the likely recovery.
5.10.5. It should be noted that legal action may be required in perusing recovery of these
transactions.
5.11. Possible Public Examination
5.11.1. There are numerous matters outlined in this report which require further explanation
and investigation. One option available to the liquidators is to make an application to the
Court to publically examine the directors, officers and key staff in respect of the
company's affairs pursuant to section 596B of the Act. Such examinations have been
found to be useful in order to obtain further records or explanations regarding
transactions entered into by the company.
5.11.2. We would not propose to conduct such an examination until such time as we have
finalised our investigations and considered further the alleged voidable transactions.
6. INSOLVENT TRADING
6.1 Section 588G of the Act provides that a director has a duty to prevent insolvent trading
by the company. If it is proven that a director is guilty of an offence it may be possible to
recover from the director an amount equal to the loss or damage suffered by the
company.
6.2 A summary of the company's trading results from 2004 are attached as Appendices C &:
D. A summary is also provided below.

6.3 Based on the financial accounts prepared by the external accountants and management
accounts we have drawn the following conclusions.
• There was a severe drop in revenue in the 2005 and 2006 financial years. However,
gross margins remained steady across these years with little or insignificant change.
• Expenses remained constant from 2005. These would be expected to decrease with
the reduction in sales. It is evident that borrowing costs increased substantially
indicating a greater reliance by the company on debt.
• The goodwill within the business of $1,702,693 was fully amortised in the draft 2008
accounts. This indicates managements belief that the goodwill was unrealisable if the
business was to be sold.
23
pilof7
• The quick asset ratio declined rapidly from the 2006 financial accounts from 1.3 to
below zero indicating the increasing difficulty of the company meeting its debts as and
when they fall due. The net assets of the business have also been steadily declining
since 2005.
• The company has incurred trading losses since 2006. Such losses are unsustainable
for extended periods of time and directly affect the company's net assets. These losses
also signal deteriorating cashflows.
6.4 Based on the books and records available to us, we make the following observations
which confirm our opinion that the company may have been trading whilst insolvent:
• In the 2007 financial accounts the company's auditor, noted his concern that there
was significant uncertainty as to if the company can operate as a going concern.
• The appointment of an investigative accountant, McGrath Nicol, by the secured
creditor in early 2008 to assess and review the company's financial position.
• We understand requests of the secured creditor for further funding in 2008 were
declined.
• Failure to meet outstanding tax liabilities, resulting in a payment arrangement entered
into with the Australian Taxation Office. Our preliminary investigations have revealed
that may have defaulted on this arrangement.
• Failure to honour employee superannuation payments since February 2011.
• Persistent and worsening trading losses, net assets and retained earnings since 2006
(refer section 5.3 above).
• A management were full aware of very tight cashflows since November 2008. This was
brought to a head in February 2010 when forecasts identified large gaps in cashflows
which were unable to be satisfied.
• The engagement of an external consultant, Mr Caine Barends of Dallas Barends to
assist with the restructure and turnaround of the business. We understand Mr Barends
prepared cash flow forecasts, undertook sales planning with staff and was in
discussions with various customers and suppliers regarding the company's financial
position. We are unsure as to when Mr Barends first became involved in Orford
Refrigeration, however it appears Mr Barends has been involved as early as November
2008. He also provided extra assistance with locating funding to alleviate the cashflow
problems the company was encountering. We understand he ultimately was appointed
to the position of Chief Executive Officer in October 2010.
• From our review of the company's records, it appears that since 2008, the company
has experienced difficulties with paying creditors by the due dates. The company
negotiated longer trading terms with some suppliers. Various suppliers had contacted
the company regarding their outstanding accounts, with some suppliers placing the
company's account on hold.
24
pilof7
• In September 200B, the company's managing director, notified staff that the company
was experiencing financial difficulties and the business was undertaking a review of
costs (including staff salaries), the operational structure and processes. In the same
notification, the human resources manager position was made redundant effective
immediately.
• The records show that on or about March 2011, the company's directors and
employees became aware that sales budgets were unachievable. We also note that
some suppliers altered their trading terms to COD.
• The company's records showed that the company was in a poor financial position from
200B.
6.5 Based on our investigations into the company's affairs, it would appear that the company
may have been trading whilst insolvent as early as mid-200B.
6.6 It would appear that there may be an action for insolvent trading, however substantial
further investigation and documentation would be required to definitively determine the
timing of insolvency and the quantum of any claim.
6.7 It should be noted however that before taking any such action, consideration will be given
as to the directors' ability to satisfy any judgment obtained and the costs associated with
taking such an action.
7. RECOVERY FROM DIRECTORS
7.1 We note that from a commercial perspective, any recovery action contemplated by the
company should take into account whether the defending party has the capacity to payor
sufficient assets which may realise adequate funds.
7.2 In order to recover funds from the company's directors or associated entities, bankruptcy
or liquidation proceedings may need to be undertaken.
7.3 Our enquiries have revealed as follows:
• Corby Orford has no registered land holdings in her name.
• Liam Orford and his spouse jointly own a property which is mortgaged. In addition,
we note Onesteel Trading Pty Ltd a major creditor of the company has lodged a
caveat over Liam Orford's interest in the property in respect of their debt.
• Both directors have provided personal guarantees to major creditors including a
significant debt owing to the secured creditor, Westpac.
7.4 It should be noted that before taking any such action, consideration will be given as to
the costs associated with taking such action and the directors' ability to satisfy any
judgment obtained.

9.2 The above estimates are subject to recovery of the company's remaining assets and
potential voidable transactions.
9.3 A return to priority creditors, if any, is subject to the recovery of funds from the voidable
transactions. If no such funds are realised, there will be no return to priority creditors.
9.4 It should be noted that substantial further investigation is required before being in a
position to estimate the likely return from voidable truncations. We expect that this
assessment may take some months to complete.
9.5 There is unlikely to be any return to unsecured creditors.

Formerly trading as "Orford Refrigeration" and "Orford Sign Shop"
("the Company")
In accordance with the Insolvency Practitioners Association of Australia Code of Professional
Practice and the requirements of the Corporations Act 2001 ("the Act"), we set out below our
remu neration report.
This report is set out as follows:-
1. Liquidators' Remuneration
2. Description of Work
3. Disbursements
4. Queries and Information Sheets
1. Liquidators' Remuneration
1.1 The Liquidators' remuneration can be calculated by a number of methods such as time
based, quoted, fixed fee, percentage of assets or on a contingency basis as follows:
Time based / hourly rates
This is the most common method. The total fee charged is based on the hourly rate
charged for each person who carried out the work multiplied by the number of hours spent
by each person on each of the tasks performed.
Fixed Fee
The total fee charged is normally quoted at the commencement of the liquidation and is
the total cost for the liquidation. Sometimes a Practitioner will finalise a liquidation for a
fixed fee.
Percentage
The total fee charged is based on a percentage of a particular variable, such as the gross
proceeds of assets realisations.
Contingency
The practitioner's fee is structured to be contingent on a particular outcome being
achieved.
1.2 We propose to charge on a time basis as:
• It ensures that creditors are only charged for work that is performed. Our time is
recorded and charged in six minute increments.
o We are required to perform a number of tasks which do not relate to the realisation of
assets, for example responding to creditor enquiries, reporting to ASIC, distributing
funds in accordance with the provisions of the Act.
o We are unable to estimate with certainty the total amount of fees necessary to
complete all tasks required in this administration.

Remuneration Report
1.3 The time based method of calculating the remuneration of the Liquidators is a fee for
services rendered according to the time spent on the particular administration by the
Liquidators, their partners and their staff. The amount of such fee is in accordance with
the role of the particular person, his or her qualifications and experience.
1.4 The scale of rates charge by our firm is attached and is in accordance with the rates
charged from time to time by Pilot Partners.
1.5 At the forthcoming meeting of creditors to be held on 31 October 2011 creditors will be
asked to approve the remuneration of the Liquidators and to pass the following resolutions:
Liquidators Past Remuneration

hereby approved for the period 6 May 2011 to 9 October 2011 in the sum of $451,323.40
(including GST) and that the joint and several Liquidators be authorised to draw their
remuneration from funds available. "
It is noted that at the meeting of creditors held on 18 May 2011, creditors approved the
future remuneration of the Liquidators to a maximum of $215,000.00 (inclusive of GST).
The Liquidators have drawn an amount of $215,000.00 in respect of the past remuneration
for this period.
We note that in addition to the above, the Department of Education, Employment and
Workplace Relations funded our remuneration and expenses for work rendered in respect
of verification and distribution of employee claims under the General Employee
Entitlements and Redundancy Scheme in the amount of $43,186.00 (including GST).
We anticipate our remuneration over the course of the next four to six months of the
liquidation to be in the order of $285,000.00 (including GST).
Liquidators Prospective Remuneration
"That the future remuneration of the joint and several Liquidators, their partners and staff
from 10 October 2011 be approved to a maximum of $285,000 (including GST) and that
they be calculated by reference to the hourly rates set down from time to time by Pilot
Partnersi and such rf!muneration be subject to review by the Court on the application of
any creditor and that the joint and several Liquidators be authorised to draw their
remuneration from funds available. "
