Mercer Group settles claim for $2.67m

NZN 5/04/2016 Edwin Mitson

Mercer Group, the stainless steel fabricator, has settled an insurance claim with AIG over damage to a property in the Christchurch earthquakes in 2010 and 2011.

AIG is to pay $2.7 million plus GST to Mercer to conclude the claim over the building on Lunns Road in Christchurch.

Mercer's directors were forced to add a note to its recent accounts stating a "material uncertainty" over the company's ability to continue as a going concern if its lenders were not willing to provide the necessary debt facilities and it was unable to secure funding elsewhere.

It posted a loss of $4.6 million for the last six months of 2015 compared to a loss of $101,000 in the same period a year earlier and owes $21 million in total.

The shares rose by 3.5 per cent to 3 cents and have tumbled 81 per cent in the past year.
