Tongaat Hulett Inching Towards Liquidation

Tongaat Hulett appears to be inching its way towards liquidation as the (currently suspended) JSE-listed sugar producer and property developer’s business rescue process increasingly becomes bogged down by legal challenges.

This follows the High Court in Durban last week hearing three urgent applications and ordering:

The adjournment of the meeting to consider and vote on Tongaat’s amended business rescue plans from December 14, 2023 to no later than January 11, 2024.

The unamended business rescue plans published on November 29, 2023 shall not be voted on, postponing the three urgent applications indefinitely.

The applications launched against Tongaat and its business rescue practitioners (BRPs) by RCL Foods Sugar & Milling and the South African Sugar Association (SASA) were for interdicts to stop the Tongaat creditors meeting from taking place.
