SINGAPORE: Out of the S$12 million collected from oBike Singapore users, S$10 million was transferred to its Hong Kong office before the company shut down in June, its liquidators said on Thursday (Aug 2).

FTI Consulting, the liquidator, said the S$10 million was netted off against a loan of S$11 million from oBike Hong Kong to its Singapore office. 

“Some of the transactions are inappropriate given the financial position of the company, and we will be looking at those a lot further,” FTI Consulting’s senior managing director Joshua Taylor said.

“We can look at unwinding that transaction to say ‘no, you do owe the money to oBike Singapore and you need to pay the money to oBike Singapore’, that's what we have communicated,” he added.

Mr Taylor said oBike Singapore users have filed “hundreds of thousands of dollars” worth of claims and that its Hong Kong office had proposed to pay for this. But FTI Consulting rejected it, as the amount falls short of the S$8.9 million in total that it owed its Singapore users. 

“What it does not take into consideration is all the money of deposit holders who have not filed,” Mr Taylor said. 

He was speaking to reporters at Shaw Tower after FTI Consulting had a three-hour meeting with the bike-sharing firm's Singapore creditors.

The liquidators will be issuing letters of demand to oBike founder Shi Yi, asking for the monies to be returned, Mr Taylor said.

“Even though he was not a director on record, my understanding is that he did have a lot of control over the Singapore operations,” he said.

“We have told Shi Yi that there has to be a process followed and he should refund the monies, and ensure everyone has an opportunity to file their claim,” he added. 

oBike users who attended the meeting on Thursday were asked to vote on whether they wanted FTI Consulting to continue representing them. Almost all of the 29 people who voted wanted the liquidators to continue.

"The most important thing is to get the creditors’ money back. That's what our role is and that's what we'll be doing," Mr Taylor said.

From the looks of it, it is arguable that the founder's intention was never to run a business proper.
Who lost money?

1. Investors
2. Suppliers(In china and local)
3. Customers
