(Updated on 30 November 2017) Important information relevant to all Creditors and Members of MF Global UK Limited (in Special Administration) (“the Company”).
Further to the Administrators’ announcement on 21 November 2017, the Administrators hereby give notice of their Proposal for a Company Voluntary Arrangement under Part I of the Insolvency Act 1986 (“CVA”). The important documents for you to review are available to view and download below.
Creditors and members should review the Proposal in detail. If you are in any doubt as to the action you should take in connection with the Proposal, or the tax or other consequences of the Proposal for you, you should contact your legal, tax or other professional advisers.
Formal notices of the Creditors’ Meeting and Members’ Meeting to approve the CVA are included within the Proposal.
***If you have previously filed a claim/Proof of Debt Form with the Administrators, you do not need to file a new claim/Proof of Debt Form.***
If you do nothing, and your claim has been accepted by the Administrators as an agreed claim in the Administration, you will, if the CVA is approved, be entitled to receive a payment that brings your aggregate distributions up to 99.75p/£ on your agreed claim. This will be the final payment you receive as an Exiting Creditor.
Creditors who have previously received distributions to date totalling 90p/£ from the Administrators will have an agreed claim.
DETAILS OF HOW TO VOTE AT THE MEETING AND HOW TO MAKE ELECTIONS UNDER THE PROPOSAL ARE CONTAINED IN PART B (VOTING, ELECTIONS AND PROVING) OF SECTION 1 OF THE PROPOSAL.

At the request of a number of creditors of the Company (together holding an amount exceeding 10% in value of the aggregate creditor claims against the Company), the creditors’ meeting will now be held by way of a physical meeting, at 12:00 p.m. on 12 December 2017, at the Connaught Rooms, 61-65 Great Queen Street, London, WC2B 5DA.

Creditors and Members will be asked to vote on the resolution that:
The virtual meeting details circulated in the Previous Notice will no longer be valid. The Nominees may, however, at their discretion, permit remote attendance (by telephone conference) at the physical meeting, if a creditor so requests in advance of the meeting. Note that the Creditors’ Meeting may be suspended or adjourned by the Chairman (and must be adjourned if it is so resolved at the meeting).
