REQUEST FOR CREDITORS' CONSENT IN TERMS OF SECTION 150(5) OF THE
COMPANIES ACT 71 OF 2008 FOR EXTENSION OF THE PUBLICATION OF THE
BUSINESS RESCUE PLAN
The Company commenced voluntary business rescue proceedings on 5 May 2020.
Messrs. Shaun Collyer and Richard Ferguson (“the Practitioners”) were appointed by Comair
Limited ("the Company") in accordance with section 129(3)(b) of the Companies Act, 2008
(“Companies Act”) as the business rescue practitioners for the Company.
Section 150(5) of the Companies Act requires that the business rescue plan for the Company
must be published ("Publication Date") within 25 business days after the date on which the
Practitioners were appointed, or such longer time as may be allowed by the holders of a
majority of the creditors’ voting interests. In this regard, the Publication Date has previously
been extended from 9 June 2020 to 23 June 2020.
On Sunday evening, 21 June 2020, the Practitioners received a non-binding expression of
interest for cash funding in the form of debt, equity and post-commencement funding, from an
interested group, which the Practitioners are exploring, and which is subject to a due diligence
investigation and further negotiations. The Practitioners require that this interested group
make a binding offer, that can be set out with reasonably sufficient detail in the business
rescue plan, and therefore require a further extension of the Publication Date by a week to
30 June 2020.
In light of the above, the Practitioners are seeking the consent of a majority of the creditors to
extend the Publication Date in terms of section 150(5)(b) of the Companies Act (“Consent”) to
30 June 2020.
In this regard, insofar as any creditor may have an objection to this request for an extension,
that creditor is kindly required to note such objection in writing by not later than 14h00 noon
(South African time) on 23 June 2020 to email@example.com.
Please note that, if in respect of any creditor, we do not receive a written objection to this
requested extension by not later than 14h00 noon (South African time) on 23 June 2020, then
such failure to so object in writing will be construed as a vote by that creditor in favour of our
request for an extension and that creditor will be deemed to have approved our request for an
23 June 2020
