ActivBiotics Assignee Issues First Distribution of Cash to Creditors


6/20/2008 11:05:19 AM

WELLESLEY HILLS, Mass., June 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Joseph F. Finn, Jr., C.P.A. ("Finn") the Assignee for the Benefit of Creditors of ActivBiotics, Inc. ("ActivBiotics") announced today the first distribution of cash to the creditors of ActivBiotics. The distribution signifies the substantial completion of the asset liquidation process and the allowance of creditors' claims. The assignment, which began the liquidation process, was a transfer of all the assets of ActivBiotics to Finn on December 7, 2007, under a common law procedure. The process was complex because ActivBiotics was a biotech start-up company with sophisticated intellectual property and fixed assets.

Finn pointed out that the assignment process allowed him to move quickly and that the distribution of cash to creditors six and a half months after the process began highlights one of the major benefits of the assignment legal process for liquidating defunct enterprises.

Finn praised the law firm he retained to assist him, Bingham McCutchen LLP, to include, but not be limited to, Edwin Smith, Meerie Joung and Jennifer Cleary.
