[8:56 PM]{pdebotto} Dave, what's a corp by guarantee
[8:56 PM]{dfalvey} Finance - No update as Bruce has the bank statement, 
still no millions
[8:57 PM]{pdebotto} Is that where the directors give personal guarantees
[8:57 PM]{Stuart} Damn it.
[8:57 PM]{dfalvey} Its basically changing the structure of teh
to something easy to manipulate
[8:57 PM]{Stuart} Corp by Guarantee is what OSIA do. A lawyer on the
there suggested it.
[8:58 PM]{Stuart} }} Is that where the directors give personal
guarantees ?
So Im guessing its limited liability
[8:58 PM]{dfalvey} we are still evaluating the pros and cons
[8:58 PM]{dfalvey} Bruce had that action as well.
[8:58 PM]{pdebotto} when will OSIA decide
[8:58 PM]{Stuart} OSIA have decided I believe - corp by guarantee is the
[8:59 PM]{Stuart} its a federal thing. That might be why
[8:59 PM]{dfalvey} That was the main benefit ,got us out of NSW laws
[8:59 PM]{dfalvey} more flixible
[8:59 PM]{pdebotto} Sounds too important for this forum !
