Liquidators appointed to Industry RE Limited

Industry RE Limited  (In Compulsory Liquidation) (“the Company”)
Royal Courts of Justice No. 004639 of 2013

Update - 23 September 2014
The most recent committee meeting was held on 2 September 2014 at 32 Cornhill, London, EC3V 3BT.  The chairman (Julie Palmer) reported generally on the progress of the liquidation to date, and the committee was invited to bring to the liquidators’ attention any concerns they have regarding the way the Company’s business was conducted.  The liquidators request that creditors who invested in the Dominica Project provide them with any copy literature/correspondence received from the Company, its director or staff that resulted in them making their investment.  In that respect please email Neil Allen ( or provide the same via fax:  0843 658 5903.  The next committee meeting is due to be held in approximately 3 months’ time.

Update - 28 July 2014
A meeting of the creditors’ committee took place at 12:00pm on 30 May 2014.  As previously advised, the liquidation is now focused on pursuing and realising Company assets.  In that respect, progress to date and next steps were discussed at length during the meeting.  The liquidator present made the point that activity was in no way winding-down but rather it was becoming more focused.  Realisations to date have not been at a level sufficient enough to enable a dividend to be paid to creditors.  However, creditors are advised that dividend prospects can neither be estimated nor ruled out at this time.  The meeting concluded at 1:35pm that same day and it was agreed the next meeting be convened after Summer.

Update - 15 April 2014
The Liquidators have fulfilled their reporting obligations and are now focused on identifying and realising assets specifically in relation to Indsustry Re Limited.  At the committee meeting held on 30 January 2014 a number of potential assets/claims were identified as areas requiring further investigation.  In that respect information will be relayed to creditors by the creditors’ committee, who continue to receive updates from the liquidators and meet on a quarterly basis.  The next meeting of the committee is convened for 25 April 2014.  Please note that Oliver Salt is no longer dealing with this case and Neil Allen ( has taken over administrative duties.
