CORPORATIONS REGULATIONS 2001 - REG 7.5.65

Cash settlement of claims if property unobtainable

             (1)  If:

                     (a)  the SEGC allows a claim in respect of property that is, or includes, a number of securities of a particular kind or documents of title to a number of securities of a particular kind; and

                     (b)  it is not reasonably practicable for the SEGC to obtain those securities, or those documents of title to securities, as the case may be, from the dealer or, if the dealer has disposed of them, from the dealer's successor in title, before the end of:

                              (i)  if the operating rules of a participating market licensee or licensed CS facility of which the dealer is a participant, being those operating rules as in force when the SEGC allows the claim, prescribe a period, for this regulation, in relation to a class of claims that includes the claim--that period; or

                             (ii)  in any other case--such period as the SEGC, having regard to all the circumstances relating to the claim, considers reasonable; and

                     (c)  it is not reasonably practicable for the SEGC to obtain that number of securities of that kind, or documents of title to that number of securities of that kind, as the case may be, before the end of that period because:

                              (i)  whether by reason that dealing in securities of that kind is suspended or for any other reason, there exists at no time during that period an orderly market in such securities; or

                             (ii)  the total number of securities of that kind offered for sale on financial markets of market licensees or Exchange bodies at times during that period when there exists an orderly market in such securities is insufficient;

the SEGC may decide to pay to the claimant the amount that, when the decision is made, is the actual pecuniary loss suffered by the claimant in respect of the first-mentioned securities, or the first-mentioned documents of title, as the case may be, and if the SEGC does so, the SEGC must pay that amount to the claimant.

             (2)  If:

                     (a)  the SEGC allows a claim that, because of a dealer having become insolvent, this Division entitles a person to make in respect of property that is, or includes, property (the relevant property ) other than money, securities or documents of title to securities; and

                     (b)  it is not reasonably practicable for the SEGC to obtain the relevant property from the dealer or, if the dealer has disposed of it, from the dealer's successor in title, before the end of such period as the SEGC considers reasonable;

the SEGC may decide to pay to the claimant the amount that, when the decision is made, is the actual pecuniary loss suffered by the claimant in respect of the relevant property, and if the SEGC does so, the SEGC must pay that amount to the claimant.
