Wellard in breach of its debt covenants again

Wellard, the Australian livestock shipper, has admitted it is once again in breach of its debt covenants.

Wellard said in a statement to the local stock exchange in Sydney it was working with its lenders to have the December 31 breach waived or have the relevant financial covenants amended to avoid being in default.

  1. The quicker any livestock shipper goes into default the better. Shipping live animals in this day of efficient freezer methods is quite unnecessary and very cruel.
