Thursday, July 13, 2000: Receiver's Recommendation Report on Implementation and Collection of the Cash Trust Fund Shortage
The Receiver today filed with the Court its Recommendation Regarding Implementation and Collection of the Cash Trust Fund Shortage. This Recommendation follows from the Recommendation Regarding Allocation of the Cash Trust Fund Shortage which was filed with the Court on June 23 and is available on this website (see below under Friday, June 23, 2000). In summary, the Receiver has recommended that:
Within fifteen days following final Court approval of an allocation methodology, the Receiver expects to prepare and mail to all current account holders whose accounts were open at April 23, 1999 and are subject to the Allocation, a statement of their accounts as at April 30, 2000, adjusted for cash transactions between April 15 and April 30, 2000, setting out the balances on which their Allocation would be based (an "Allocation Statement") and the amount of the Allocation.
The Receiver also expects to mail to these account holders an outline of the options available to meet their Allocation. In summary, these Options (individually, or in combination) are:
Should account holders not direct the Receiver with respect to implementation of the Allocation within a specified time period, the Receiver will remove cash or the proceeds from liquidating non-cash assets in accordance with priorities set out in the Report.
If there are insufficient assets to meet the Allocation or if the assets are incapable of liquidation, the Receiver will place a lien on the account in the amount of the Allocation and this lien will bear interest until paid.
The lien will prevent the liquidation, transfer or closure of the account or any assets in the account until this obligation has been met.
There may be tax implications for many account holders and the Receiver, to the extent reasonably possible, wishes to implement the Allocation in a manner which account holders believe best deals with those tax implications.
The Receiver is neither identifying tax issues nor giving any advice to account holders with respect to any tax issues. Account holders are strongly urged to discuss the tax implications of the Allocation with their tax advisors.
The foregoing summary of the report is qualified in its entirety by the exact terms of the report as filed. Details of the recommendations are contained in the Receiver's Report. You may access these materials filed with the Court, including the Receiver's Report, by clicking here [Read Document].
