The special administrators of MF Global UK Limited (in special administration) (“MFG UK”) have published their second six month progress report on activity to date, in accordance with statutory requirements.
Richard Heis, joint special administrator of MFG UK and restructuring partner at KPMG, commented: “We have seen some substantial progress made since our last progress report six months ago. In excess of £1 billion of assets have now been recovered into the house estate, while client assets and monies of some $923 million have been recovered. Statements in draft or final form have been sent to 95% of all trading customers, and over $179 million has been distributed to them. We have resolved approximately half of the 1,300 disputed claims regarding segregated and non-segregated account classifications. Seventy MF Global UK employees have been retained until at least 30 April 2013 to work alongside the KPMG team working on this complex case.”
