HARLEQUIN DEAL ALERT - BE PREPARED

If any deal goes ahead for Harlequin, investors need to be ready to act. There are a number of options :-

The "Liquidation Option"

1. A deal involving a liquidation of the Harlequin asset owing companies.  The liquidator will then sell the assets to a bidding company.  The bidding company would acquire the assets free from any claims from investors - eg all investors become unsecured creditors in the liquidation.

The key issues under this option for investors would be :-

(a) was the transaction at arms length ?

(b) Does David Ames, his family members or a part holding as a nominee retain any interest in the bidding company ?

(c) does the transaction represent the best option for creditors ?

Remember, under this option David Ames as sole shareholder and director can pick which liquidator he appoints.

The "Historical Option" :-

2. The companies are sold. The bidding company acquires the assets and liabilities.  We do not see this as an option any third party would want.  Why inherit the historical problems ?

Preparation

We have lawyers in the main jurisdictions.  We have a very detailed understanding of the companies.

We have been instructed by (in the past) or continue to be instructed by significant numbers of Harlequin investors.   We have the ability to reach the majority of investors quickly.

Preparation is key and lack of it will allow those who do not hold investor interests at heart to act without challenge.

David Ames - Statutory Declaration

We feel it important that Harlequin confirm their solvency. See attached declaration sent to David Ames's lawyers. We can see no reason why this cannot be attended to.  It would provide reassurance.

What type of Investor?

I invested in Two Rivers in 2007 through a Finance Broker, otherwise I would not have known about Harlequin or have been convinced to do so. I have been able to produce the Broker’s contract form that had conditions indicating I had to complete, but have been told that I would only get my £1000 back unless I can prove that the broker advised me to go and get finance. Clearly, he must have said something as I am not able to pay the money in full but the chance of producing a telephone call or…See More
