IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM DEFIB FOR LIFE
RE:G3 & G5 Cardiac Science 7-year pad and battery replacement package
On Friday, 26 March 2021, our lawyers received notification that Dean Sheezel, the managing director of Cardiac Defibrillators Australia PtyLtd (Cardiac Defibrillators), placed Cardiac Defibrillators into voluntary liquidation.
A liquidator has been appointed and he will move quickly to realise all of the assets in Cardiac Defibrillators and to pay creditors in proportion to the amount of their debts. We are waiting for further information from the liquidator regarding Cardiac Defibrillators, including the known creditors of the company, the amount of their debts, and whether claims can be brought against the directors of Cardiac Defibrillators.
It is difficult to estimate when dividends will be paid to the creditors, and how much those dividends will be. It is also difficult to estimate how long it will take for the liquidator to complete his investigations in relation to Cardiac Defibrillators.
Should Defib For Life be successful in redeeming some funds from Cardiac Defibrillators, we will endeavour to arrange a reimbursement on a pro rata basis amongst all the customers who have prepaid for the replacement electrode pads and batteries in the seven-year package, but have not received them.
Defib For Life’s highest priority is to ensure that your defibrillators remain rescue-ready as much as possible. Contrary to a number of discussions some of our customers have had with Cardiac
Defibrillators, Defib For Life have been able sourcereplacement electrode pads and batteries for the G3 and G5 Powerheart defibrillators from an alternate supplier.
For those customers who are affected by the voluntary liquidation of Cardiac Defibrillators, replacement electrode pads and batteries are currently available at as close to cost price as possible. If your defibrillator’s electrode pads and/or batteries are past, or close to, their expiry dates, Defib For Life are able to assist you in securing suitable replacements.
Please contact Sue Buckman via firstname.lastname@example.org or 1300 880 309.
