Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

UNSECURED CREDITORS of Specialised Pallet Transport (SPT), the pre-pack haulier set up to take over the former business of Steve Prince Transport, are not expected to be paid.

The firm succumbed to the same fate as Essex-based Steve Prince and entered administration in September, due to its "unprofitable nature".

Administrator Alan Clark at Carter Clark Recovery said it was not possible to rescue SPT as a going concern, and that he would attempt to make a distribution to one or more secured or preferential creditors instead.

So far, 24 non-preferential creditors have lodged claims totalling almost £394,000 and Clark believes another 70 claims totalling £334,000 are due.

"I do not anticipate a dividend being declared to unsecured creditors after the administration has been converted into a liquidation," he added. "The costs of the administration will be in excess of the anticipated surplus available after payment to the preferential creditors."
