Long Plumbers Limited (in liquidation) was put into liquidation by a special resolution
of the shareholders at Christchurch on the 15 February 2008 at 11.30am.

The company commenced active trading April 2004, when the business was
acquired from a family owned company.

between the shareholders. The company has ceased to trade.


The liquidators have been advised that there is stock on hand, cash on hand, bank
account, book debts, tools of trade, motor vehicles, office furniture and equipment,
shares and rebates.
An examination of company records once received will be undertaken by the
liquidators to establish whether there are any further assets.

Any creditor who wishes to make a reservation of title claim or any security interest
against the assets must inform the liquidators and provide relevant documentation
prior to the 20 March 2008. This may include an initial credit application form and
relevant invoices to identify goods supplied by the creditor, security documents as
well as details of registration under the Personal Property and Securities Act. The
liquidators will not be held to account to any creditor for the proceeds of sale after the
assets are sold.


Until all information has been received from the directors, valuations obtained and an
investigation and analysis of the current accounts has been completed it is too early
to determine whether a dividend will become available for the creditors.


The liquidators relying upon section 245 of the Companies Act 1993 hereby dispense
with the need to hold a meeting of creditors. You are advised that no such meeting

I\data\summaries\Long Plumbers sum doc
will be held unless a creditor gives notice in writing to the liquidator, within 10 working
days after receiving this notice. If you are seeking a meeting please state the reason
that you require a meeting so that an agenda can be prepared, advertised and
creditors can be given full information to vote on any issue by voting letter.

In accordance with section 314 of the Companies Act 1993 a creditor or shareholder
may request the liquidators to call a meeting of creditors or shareholders at any time
in the course of the liquidation to vote on a proposal that a Liquidation Committee be
appointed to act with the liquidators. This request must be in writing.

The liquidator may decline a request by a creditor or a shareholder to call a meeting
on the ground that:
(a)    the request is frivolous or vexatious; or
(b)    the request was not made in good faith; or
(c)    the costs of calling the meeting would be out of proportion to the value of the
       company’s assets. The decision to decline a request may be reviewed by the
       Court on the application of any creditor or shareholder.

As mentioned earlier until all the information has been received from the directors it
is too early to determine whether a dividend will be payable.

If you have any information that you think may assist the liquidators, you are
most welcome to contact us during normal business hours.
Failing any significant information becoming available, we expect to complete the
administration of this liquidation by 30 September 2008. We expect to report to you
at that time which will be the final communication to you on this company liquidation.
