A revised Payment Percentage of 65% has been set under the Amending Scheme of Arrangement of OIC Run-Off Limited and The London and Overseas Insurance Company Limited (together the “Companies”). This represents an increase of 7% on the previous Payment Percentage.
Dan Schwarzmann, Partner at PwC and Joint Scheme Administrator of the Companies, said:
“Scheme Creditors who have already received a payment of 58% in respect of their Established Liabilities should receive an additional 7% payment within 90 days. Policyholders whose claims are yet to be agreed will receive payment as soon as the Companies’ liabilities to them become established.
“Established Liabilities covered by the arrangement between Nationale-Nederlanden Overseas Finance and Investment Company Unlimited (“NNOFIC”) and The Institute of London Underwriters (“ILU”), known as Qualifying Established Liabilities, will continue to be paid in full.”
With regard to the estimated final Payment Percentage, Dan Schwarzmann commented:
“Further increases in the Payment Percentage are anticipated during 2018 and 2019 as the claims agreement process continues. The Explanatory Statement highlighted an estimated final Payment Percentage of 78%. We will have a revised estimate by early 2018.
“It is expected that the majority of distributions, due to increases to the Payment Percentage, should have occurred by September 2019. Distributions after that date may however be necessary if, for example, pre-1969 L&O Policyholders revert to run-off as outlined in the Explanatory Statement.”
