*On 16 December 2019, the Official Receiver issued a formal notice to creditors of the Thomas Cook Group Companies in Liquidation, a report to Thomas Cook creditors and contributories and an information sheet to accompany the report. These documents are available for viewing on the Liquidator’s report and notices page.
On 23 September 2019, the High Court appointed the Official Receiver as liquidator of the Companies (listed below) on the petition of the Companies’ directors. Simultaneously, the Court also appointed Simon Appell, Alastair Beveridge, Daniel Imison, and Ben Browne as Special Managers to support the liquidator.
The Special Managers were appointed by the High Court to help manage the affairs, business and property of the Companies, in accordance with the powers and duties contained in the order appointing them. The Special Managers act as agents of the Companies, without personal liability.
All of the Special Managers are licensed in the United Kingdom to act as insolvency practitioners by the Insolvency Practitioners Association.
Restructuring professionals from KPMG have also been appointed by the Court as Special Managers of Thomas Cook Retail Limited, Travel and Financial Services Limited, TCCT Retail Limited, Retail Travel Limited, Thomas Cook Aircraft Engineering Limited, The Freedom Travel Group Limited and Future Travel Limited.
The Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), with assistance from the Special Managers have completed the repatriation of UK Thomas Cook customers.
A dedicated website has been set up by the CAA for customers and any affected passengers currently overseas or travelling in the future should contact the CAA at Thomascook.caa.co.uk.
The government have setup a designated web page to assist with stakeholder queries, this can be found here: https://www.gov.uk/government/news/thomas-cook-information-for-customers-employees-creditors-and-shareholders.
Under UK insolvency law there is no provision for a creditors or liquidation committee to be formed in a case when the court has made a compulsory winding up order and the Official Receiver (a statutory office holder employed by the government) is appointed as liquidator, as has happened with the Thomas Cook group companies. Therefore, creditors cannot request the formation of such a committee.
