Review Panel Requires Bigshop Placement to be Put to Shareholders

The Panel today advised the directors of Ltd that a proposed issue to Macquarie Bank Limited of 6.667 million shares in Bigshop should go to Bigshop shareholders for approval. The decision was in response to an application by Fast Scout Limited to the Panel for review of the Panel's decision of 27 September 2001, when the Panel decided (in its Bigshop 01 decision) not to make a declaration of unacceptable circumstances in relation to the proposed issue.
