2 CAYMAN ISLANDS CHINA CYPRUS FRANCE GERMANY GUERNSEY HONG KONG Liquidation expenses, including liquidator s fees and disbursements Preferential debts, which are: certain sums due to employees; certain taxes due to the Cayman Islands Government; for certain Cayman Islands banks, certain sums due to depositors. Ordinary debts which are not otherwise secured, and not subject to certain subordination or deferral agreements. Ordinary debts that are subject to certain subordination or deferral agreements. In an official liquidation lasting more than six months, interest accruing on the company s debts since commencement of the liquidation. Amounts due to preferred shareholders (under the company s articles of association). Debts incurred by the company to redeem or purchase its own shares, provided the redemption or purchase was to take place before liquidation commenced. Shareholders of the company in accordance with its articles or any shareholders agreement. Bankruptcy expenses. Creditors of common interest liabilities. Preferential creditors. Costs of the winding-up. Preferential debts. Any amount secured by a floating charge. Unsecured ordinary creditors. Deferred debts, such as sums due to members in respect of dividends declared but not paid. Share capital. Where there are different classes of share capital, such as preference shares, their respective rankings will be determined by the terms on which they were issued. The general principles can be summarised as follows: Employees pre-petition claims benefiting from a statutory super-privilege (in particular, wages in arrears for the last 60 days before the opening judgment). Post-petition court expenses validly incurred after the opening judgment. Lenders that extended credit to a company as part of a workout agreement during conciliation proceedings. In safeguard and rehabilitation proceedings, post-petition claims benefit from a statutory privilege provided they: arise for the purpose of funding the observation period; or represent consideration owed to a lender, or to a provider of goods or services in a business transaction directly connected to the company s activities continued during the observation period. These post-petition claims must be paid when they fall due. If not, they rank ahead of both secured and unsecured pre-filing claims in liquidation. Claims of post-petition creditors not qualifying for the statutory privilege above rank pari passu with all unsecured pre-filing claims. Shareholders do not receive any repayment of their capital investment, unless a surplus remains after all the creditors have been paid in full (which is extremely rare). In liquidation (as opposed to insolvency) proceedings, certain pre-filing claims rank pari passu with the post-petition claims set out in the fourth bullet point above (for example, claims secured by a mortgage or by a lien over movables with a retention right and claims secured by a pledge on equipment). Insolvency estate creditors. These are claims resulting from new contracts signed by the insolvency administrator. If a creditor holds a security interest in a property, usually the insolvency administrator must sell the property. The insolvency administrator must disburse the remaining proceeds to the secured creditors. Insolvency creditors. All unsecured creditors who have registered their claims in writing with the insolvency administrator and whose claims have been accepted by the insolvency administrator rank pari passu and are paid from the remaining insolvency estate on a pro rata basis. Subordinated creditors. If the claims of all insolvency creditors are fully paid (which is extremely rare), subordinated creditors are paid. Any remaining surplus is distributed to the shareholders. Costs and Expenses properly incurred. Preferential debts. Postponed debts. Members. Liquidation costs. Preferential creditors. Floating charge holders.

3 INDIA ITALY JAPAN JERSEY LUXEMBOURG MEXICO First priority is to secure workmen s dues and debts of secured creditors, which together constitute pari passu charges on all of the company s assets. After first priority debts are dismissed in full, second priority is to meet all costs and expenses of the winding-up process. Third priority are all preferential creditors, comprising: taxes; revenues cesses or rates due to the government or its instruments; employees with unsettled labour related claims. Fourth priority are all floating charge holders. Fifth priority are unsecured creditors of the company. Finally, if there is anything remaining after making these payments in full, the balance is paid to the shareholders of the company in proportion to their shareholding. The order of creditor and shareholder rankings are as follows: Preferential claims (crediti in prededuzione). These include: Costs and expenses incurred by the receiver and the court during the course of bankruptcy proceedings are preferential claims. Loans granted by financial institutions to the debtor for a settlement with creditors or a debt restructuring agreement. The expert s costs and fees for validated the plan underlying a settlement with creditors or a debt restructuring agreement. Secured claims (crediti privilegiati). These include claims secured by mortgages, pledges or liens. Unsecured claims (crediti chirografari). This category includes claims incurred before the bankruptcy petition was filed and the unsecured creditors usually receive a pro rata share of the distributed funds, ranking after the secured claims. In practice, shareholders do not usually receive a distribution from the bankruptcy. If funds are available, holders of preferred shares take priority over ordinary shareholders. While the position of all creditors is superior to that of the shareholders, different priorities exist among the creditors. Claims in bankruptcy cases are generally paid in the following order of priority: Administrative claims. Priority bankruptcy claims. Bankruptcy claims. Subordinated bankruptcy claims. In most bankruptcy procedures, priority bankruptcy claims can only be partially paid after all of the administrative claims are paid. Therefore, it is common for no distributions to be made to the bankruptcy claims. Désastre. In this procedure, the following ranking applies. Fees of the Viscount of the Royal Court of Jersey (Viscount). Debtor s employees (specified entitlement). Taxes (including social security), rent and rates. All other debts proved in the désastre. Any surplus is distributed among the shareholders. Secured creditors in respect of immovable property are entitled to be repaid as a preference from the realisation of the property to which their security relates, less certain costs. Secured creditors who have a security interest in intangible movable property are entitled to the proceeds of sale (or application of cash and similar security) in respect of the collateral. The secured party must apply the proceeds of sale in a certain order of priority. As between secured creditors, the priority of repayment is determined by the date of the hypothec or security interest agreement, subject to any contractual subordination. A set-off creditor has certain priority under mandatory set-off or contractual set-off rules. The statutory order of priorities does not mention security by pledge or foreign security. Creditors winding up. The order of priority is generally the same as for a désastre. Creditors in relation to expenses of the estate. Preferred creditors with a general preferential right. Preferred creditors with a special preferential right. Ordinary unsecured creditors. Employee wages and other monetary benefits due to the debtor s employees accruing during the two years prior to the declaration of business reorganisation. Expenses incurred in the management, preservation, custody and sale of the debtor s assets. Expenses of the insolvency court. Fees and expenses of the examiner, conciliator and receiver. Burial expenses of the debtor (if applicable). Secured debts. Labour debts (different from those mentioned above). Debts in favour of creditors who have the right to withhold the debtor s assets or have other special privileges under Mexican law. All shareholders (common and preferred stock) who would only have a right to receive any residual amount after all the above debts are paid
