Written answers (Question to Finance)

The Special Liquidators were appointed to Irish Bank Resolution Corporation Limited (the "Bank") pursuant to the Special Liquidation Order of 7th February 2013 (the "order") and they are in the process of progressing the special liquidation pursuant to the order. The Special Liquidators are currently establishing the composition of and the ownership structure of the subsidiaries of which there are nearly 300. However, no other entities, other than the Bank were specifically party to the order of 7th February. The remaining subsidiaries will be wound up or sold by the Special Liquidators to optimise value, and once all of its obligations are resolved, IBRC will cease to exist.
