Bankruptcy and Insolvency Court Ruling Pertaining to Digitcom Telecommunications Inc.

As of today, it appears the courts have given a ruling in the matter of the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act pertaining to Digitcom Telecommunications Inc. The Honourable Justice Conway ordered Digitcom’s insolvency trustee, Grant Thornton, to proceed with a “sale and investment solicitation process” that will invite interested bidders to submit final bids by January 20, 2023. If a bidder is successful and the court approves, the deal would close on February 3, 2023. Creditors will be paid out in this order:

  1. Administration Charge (up to the maximum amount of $100,000.00);
  2. Interim Lender’s Charge (approx. $400,000);
  3. Directors & Officers Indemnity Charge (up to the maximum amount of $75,000.00);
  4. Key Employee Retention Plan Charge (up to the maximum amount of $135,000.00);
  5. TD’s pre-existing security (approx. $3,500,000); and
  6. Key Employee Incentive Plan Charge (up to the maximum amount of $112,500.00).

If any proceeds remain, one would assume that creditors named as of Oct. 31, 2022 would be paid in proportion to their claims.
