Written answers (Question to Finance)

As part of the role of the liquidators, the assets of IBRC will be valued independently before being sold. Any assets not sold to third parties (including loan counterparties and other financial institutions) at or above the valuation price will be sold to NAMA at the independent valuation. As such, I have been advised that KPMG corporate finance will not be appointed as part of this process and that the valuation will be undertaken by independent professional advisor(s) or valuer(s).
