On 31 May 2019, Nigel Rackham and Michael Jervis were appointed joint liquidators of Fixi Plc by deemed consent. The Company provided trading platforms to professional, institutional and retail clients since its incorporation in 2005. The business has been financially strained and the focus of regulatory attention, having made losses for a number of years. In December 2018, the Company reported to the Financial Conduct Authority ("FCA"), that it was below the minimum capital threshold due to poor revenues and a lack of funds being injected from the main shareholder.
The Company was unable to resolve its problems, and talks with third party investors did not lead to anything tangible. As a result, the Company submitted a voluntary application for the imposition of requirements ("VREQ") to the FCA on 20 December 2018.
Under the VREQ, the Company agreed to not conduct any regulated activities except with the written consent of the FCA, and to close all open trading positions. All payments since the VREQ have required authorisation from the FCA before being made.
A board meeting of directors was held on 1 May 2019, where the board decided to put the Company into a creditors' voluntary liquidation ("CVL").
On 31 May 2019, the Company shareholders passed a winding up resolution by written resolution and appointed Nigel Rackham and Michael Jervis as joint liquidators. A creditors' decision by deemed consent on that day confirmed the appointment.
