PwC appointed Receivers to Mainzeal Property and Construction Limited and associated entities

[6 February 2013]

Colin McCloy and David Bridgman, Partners from PwC, today have been appointed Receivers to Mainzeal Property and Construction Limited and associated entities as a result of a request made by its director to BNZ.

Mainzeal’s Director, Richard Yan advised that following a series of events that had adversely affected the Company’s financial position coupled with a general decline in major commercial construction activity, and in the absence of further shareholder support, the Company could no longer continue trading.
