CORPORATIONS ACT 2001 No. 50, 2001 - SECT 952A

Cash settlement of claims—SCH-regulated transfers



allows under subsection 950(2) a claim in respect of a purchase of securities by the claimant from a dealer; or
allows under subsection 952(3) a claim in respect of a purchase of securities by a dealer on behalf of the claimant; and
a transfer of the securities pursuant to the purchase would be an SCH-regulated transfer; and

it is not reasonably practicable for SEGC to obtain securities of the same kind and number as the first-mentioned securities from the dealer before the end of:

if the SCH business rules, as in force when the Board allows the claim, prescribe a period, for the purposes of this section, in relation to a class of claims that includes the claim—that period; or
otherwise—such period as the Board, having regard to all the circumstances of the claim, considers reasonable; and
it is not reasonably practicable for SEGC to obtain, otherwise than from the dealer, securities of that kind and number before the end of that period because:

whether because that dealing in those securities is suspended or for any other reason, there exists at no time during that period an orderly market in those securities; or
the total number of those securities offered for sale on stock markets of participating exchanges or Exchange subsidiaries at times during that period when there exists an orderly market in those securities is insufficient;
SEGC must satisfy the claim by paying to the claimant the amount that, when the claimant became entitled to make the claim, was the amount of the actual pecuniary loss suffered by the claimant in respect of the purchase.
