delisted after NZX Market Supervision (NZXMS) advises that VTL ordinary shares will cease to be quoted, and VTL will be delisted from the NZSX, as of the close of business on Monday, 20 September 2010. VTL has been in suspension since being placed in receivership on 6 November 2008. VTL is being delisted as part of a process that NZXMS is undertaking to delist issuers that have been in long term suspension on NZX markets20/09/2010
receivers expect that the secured creditor will suffer a shortfall and therefore unsecured creditors and shareholders will not receive a distribution16/07/2009
New Zealand Markets Disciplinary Tribunal censures VTL for its breach of Listing Rule 3.4.3 (this concerned a director of VTL, Mervyn Doolan) - in addition NZMDT made an order that VTL pay to NZX a sum of $30,000 by way of penalty and costs of $10,000 together with all of the costs of NZMDT - so of course the penalty is effectively levied against VTL shareholders - should not the errant director be penalised and the victims of his behaviour (ie. the company's shareholders) be the beneficiaries??25/03/2009
