The restructuring adviser for UAE-based oil and bunkering firm GP Global has flagged up “accounting irregularities” within the company’s books, reports Bloomberg.
FTI Consulting has allegedly cautioned the group’s creditors that they could realistically forecast a recovery rate of between 0% to 27.5% of their exposure. Creditors reportedly have more than $1 billion in exposure to GP Global.
The advisors also recommended an overhaul and asset sales rather than liquidation as liquidation “would likely result in a nil return to creditors.”
This is due to trade finance irregularities discovered during investigations that make it unlikely that any institution would come to the company’s rescue, it FTI.
GP Global has allegedly received at least 15 expressions of interest in its endeavor to sell its terminal and refinery, and final bids are expected to come in by the end of October.
The owners of GP Global, the Goel family purportedly intend to contribute $65 million to be paid out over three years as part of the restructuring efforts.
