Deed Poll in respect of creditor claims – 9 January 2015

The Joint Administrators were appointed to the Nortel EMEA filed entities on 14 January 2009. The six year anniversary of the filings is 14 January 2015.

The Joint Administrators consider that it is in the interests of the creditors of each filed entity to enter into a deed poll providing that limitation periods in respect of certain claims will not expire on this sixth anniversary. The Joint Administrators also consider that the deed poll will promote the efficient conduct of the administrations by avoiding the need to deal with requests from individual creditors for separate bilateral arrangements.

A copy of the deed poll is here.

The effect of the deed poll is to legally bind the Nortel EMEA filed entities to the course of action detailed therein. The deed poll does not require creditors to take any additional action.

This summary is intended to inform creditors of the entry by the Joint Administrators into the deed poll. In the event of a conflict between this summary and the terms of the deed poll, the terms of the deed poll shall prevail.

Should you have any queries regarding this update, please contact the Joint Administrators.
