Dear Sir/Madam

VICTORIAN PINE DESIGN PTY LTD
(ADMINISTRATORS APPOINTED)
A.C.N. 092 661 188

I advise that on 19 May 2003, M R Auty and I were appointed joint and several
Voluntary Administrators of the above named company pursuant to Section 436A(1) of
the Corporations Act.

I am now calling the first meeting of Creditors pursuant to Section 436E of the
Corporations Act and enclose the following:

1       Notice of Meeting of Creditors
2       Proof of Debt Form for the purposes of voting
3       Proxy Form
4       Ordering Procedures Memorandum
5       Authorised Signatories to Purchase Orders Form
6       Question Sheet for the First Meeting
7       Creditor Details Form
8       Listing of Creditors
9       IPAA/ASIC Information for Creditors Circular
10      First Report to Creditors

Please note that persons are not entitled to vote as a creditor at the meeting unless they
have lodged with the Chairman of the meeting particulars of the debt they claim to be
due to them from the Company. Corporate creditors are required to appoint a natural
person to vote on their behalf at the meeting of creditors.

Proofs of debt and Proxy Forms should be lodged with this office prior to the meeting.
These forms may be lodged via facsimile on 03 9611 6666, however in accordance with
Corporations Regulation 5.6.36A the original signed copy of the Proxy Form should be
lodged with my office within 72 hours of lodging the faxed copy.

Should creditors wish to update their contact details on my files, please complete the
attached Request for Creditor Contact Details Form and return it to my office.

Alternatively if creditors have any questions and/or issues they wish me to address at the
meeting of creditors, I request they complete the attached Question Sheet and return it
to my office prior to the meeting to enable me to prepare a detailed response to your
query.

Copies of this Circular to Creditors including the Notice of Meeting, Proof of Debt,
Proxy Form and First Report to Creditors can also be downloaded from
www.grantthornton.com.au via the “Insolvency Admin” link. The minutes of the First
Meeting of Creditors will also be available from the website approximately 14 days after
the meeting.

Please also find enclosed an Information for Creditors Circular produced by the
Insolvency Practitioners Association of Australia and the Australian Securities and
Investments Commission containing general information to creditors of companies that
have been placed in Voluntary Administration.

As a result of my appointment all claims by creditors against the Company are stayed
whilst the Company is under Voluntary Administration. Accordingly, no proceedings
against the company or its property can be commenced or proceeded with during the
moratorium period.

This moratorium period will last until the Second Meeting of Creditors when a decision
is made as to the Company’s future. This meeting will be held within 28 days of my
appointment and you shall receive a written notice of the time and place of the meeting
along with a report outlining the Company’s business, property, affairs and financial
circumstances in approximately 21 days time.

I further advise that since the date of my appointment I am continuing the trading
activities of the Company. Accordingly, as Voluntary Administrator I will only be
liable for those debts of the Company incurred from 19 May 2003 that are ordered
in accordance with my ordering procedures and signed by an authorised
signatory.

Please find enclosed the “Ordering Procedures Memorandum” outlining the terms,
conditions and procedures to be followed by ALL suppliers of the Company from 19
May 2003.

The enclosed “Authorised Signatories to Purchase Orders Form” lists those persons,
with samples of their signatures, authorised to approve purchase orders on behalf of the
Company during the Voluntary Administration. The “Authorised Signatories to
Purchase Orders Form” also states the maximum value of goods and/or services the
authorised signatories are authorised to approve for purchase on behalf of the Company.

A copy of the “Ordering Procedures Memorandum” and “Authorised Signatories to
Purchase Orders Form” are also available from www.grantthornton.com.au via the
“Insolvency Admin” link.

In relation to suppliers who have consignment stock or claim to hold a Retention of Title
claim against the Company, it is requested that details of same should be provided to Mr
Matt Byrnes of my office immediately.

Should you have any queries in relation to the above, please do not hesitate to contact
