Elkerton said investigations were continuing into the collapse, with administrators examining the transfer of funds between the Australian and UK operation, which has also gone into liquidation.

“We are looking into the reasons for the transfers and the suitability of it,” he said.

Another creditor’s meeting will be held later this month.
