• University of NSW accounting academic Jeffrey Knapp said “while there might be no mischief in the ASIC chairman acquiring an asset from a listed company in financial distress, the deal raised issues about independence”.

''It looks bad when ASIC issues an unusual exemption in the early days of the company's administration, the company subsequently loses its financial records and then releases an annual financial report that is not true and fair and not in accordance with accounting standards.''
