PBC are pleased to report that having already paid preferential creditors in full a dividend of 9.72 pence in the pound was paid to unsecured creditors of GLA Stroud Limited when it was anticipated no funds would be available.

The company was placed into creditors’ voluntary liquidation on 4 June 2014 after the preceding company voluntary arrangement it had entered failed due to circumstances out of its control.

Joint liquidator, Gary Pettit, said, “Asset realisations in any construction industry insolvency can be complex but in this case they were significantly higher than originally anticipated with the retentions due to the company being recovered with the assistance of Leslie Keats.  Also, book debt recoveries were at 95% of the ledger which was achieved by pragmatic negotiation and assisted by good record keeping by the company in the first instance”.
