A successful termination resolution was obtained for a subsidiary of a multinational company that was subject to a voluntary liquidation proceeding

On September 22, the 21st Civil Court of Santiago issued a resolution terminating the liquidation proceeding to which Regus Business Centre de Chile V S.A. ("Regus V"), a subsidiary of the multinational group IWG plc, was subject. As a result, the court declared extinguished −by the sole authority of the law− all unpaid debts that the company had with its respective creditors, which amounted to a sum of over US$1.6 million.

In this regard, it should be noted that during the proceedings, no action was filed by the company's creditors against its former administrators or legal representatives, no revocation actions were presented, and none of the verified claims were challenged. Likewise, the termination resolution was not subject to appeals by the creditors.
