Interac Bankrupt or not?

Category: Japan RelatedIchiban @ 10:04 am

Are they just getting out of a shrinking market before they do go bankrupt?



An email to staff.

From: Kevin Salthouse, General Manager, Human Resources and Class
Management Division
Subject: Response to rumors concerning the financial stability of Interac.
Date: ?September 26, 2010

Earlier this month, I wrote a message in the ‘Interac-shin’ newsletter
announcing that the Selnate Group was re-organizing into a new group under the Interac name. This change will be effective October 1, 2010.

Unfortunately, comments have been made on the forums of some well-known websites this weekend suggesting that Interac may be in financial difficulty or be going bankrupt. I am deeply concerned that such rumors may cause you worry and stress. So, let me categorically state that Interac is financially stable and in absolutely NO danger of going bankrupt. I would like to put an end to such rumors here and now. Nor will the re-organization have any impact on your jobs or working conditions.

It appears that the cause of such rumors was a legal notice placed by us in
the Government’s Official Gazette on August 24 2010 announcing that Interac would dissolve on October 1.

This is technically true. Part of the re-organization involves consolidation. Selnate Group companies will be consolidated into one big organization. One of our other group companies AP 18 will assimilate the others as New Interac with the old Interac dissolving. Under Japanese law the new group will simply take over all elements of the previous companies.

In practice nothing will change. For example, the same executive and
management team will continue and your contracts and employment status will simply role into the new company. You remain as Interac employees. Also, the re-organization will in no way affect the existing contracts with our clients. All our clients are aware of the change and understand it.

The other question that has been raised is in regard to the ownership of the Selnate Group. At the beginning of this year the previous main shareholder retired from the group management. At that time, and after careful consideration and consultation with the executive board members, the board approved changing the main shareholder of the Selnate Group to a long-term investment fund managed by Advantage Partners.

As a company Advantage Partners is the largest in its field in Japan with an
outstanding reputation for the support that it provides to its portfolio
companies.

Its own philosophy is to contribute to society by teaming up with good,
profitable organizations that they believe they can assist to grow and
become stronger. We all believed that Advantage Partners philosophy fits
well with our own and is in an ideal position to help Interac maintain and
strengthen its current business and seek new areas of opportunity in the
future. Indeed, we are already seeing the benefits of the fresh perspective
and management support that they provide.

Since we are unlisted, we have never made the names of its shareholders
public but since facts were falsely represented in a public forum, I decided
to address this issue with you.

Thank you and if you do have any concerns or questions, please do not
hesitate to speak with your management consultant.

This company had years to get its act together. Multiple warnings. Many court cases. I sometimes wonder though whether the General Union is out to help the workers or just destroy their work places.
It’s one thing to point out where companies are breaking the law but the Union never seems to find ways to help these companies. They just make it even more difficult for them to survive.
Now there will be hundreds of teachers out of work today and with the influx of unemployed, the competition drives down wages across the whole country. Nobody is a winner here.

From ESL Cafe

From October 1st Interac will cease to exist. The company, due to financial distress, was bought out by Advantage Partnets…a management buyout company. After informing the authorities of their financial problems Interac asked for a buyout company to take them over.

AP has many bought out companies on its books…Interac is acquisition number 18…Interac’s book section was bought out too…acquisition number 19. AP has already bought an unrelated company…number 20. It is best to view such a company as a stripping company…that is they buy out companies in financial difficulties then strip them down and sell them off. AP has already made it clear that from October 1st it will dissolve Interac.

What all this means for ALT’s I don’t know…? Your guess is as good as mine. Interac has many employees who frequent this board…unfortunately Interac has been lying to them with regards to what is happening to their company. They never wanted to tell ALT’s that the ship was sinking because they might jump ship. For all Interac employees you need to ask your supervisors/managers etc…what is going to happen…ask them for the truth.

Interac have never informed the BOE’s they contract with. This is changing as documentation is currently being sent to all BOE’s concerned. I myself have been given documentation to send to all the BOE’s in my area.

I would like to think that this is the beginning of the end for ALT dispatch companies…but I imagine that others will try and fight for Interac’s cut of the market. Nevertheless it shows that all that low bidding to win contracts is starting to have an effect on parasitic companies like Interac.
