Australian Unity Office Fund - Undertaking

The Panel has accepted an undertaking from Australian Unity Investment Real Estate Limited (AUIREL), as responsible entity of Australian Unity Office Fund (AOF), in relation to the application dated 13 November 2019 by ASIC (see TP19/65). 

AUIREL, as responsible entity of AOF, has in effect undertaken not to cause the trust scheme to become effective until 3 business days after the Panel’s determination of ASIC’s application.

The Panel considers that the undertaking sufficiently preserves the status quo in relation to the application and accordingly declined to make the interim order sought by ASIC to adjourn the scheme meeting.

A copy of the undertaking is attached.

The Panel is otherwise still considering the matter.
