It is difficult at such an early stage to predict how much you may ultimately recover as a result of losses that may have been suffered in relation to Woolworths shareholdings.
Assuming that Woolworths is found to have breached the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) and/or other laws which caused you loss, the size of your claim will depend on how the Court assesses your loss.
The methodology that a Court may ultimately adopt when assessing your loss is not fully settled in Australian law and may depend on the evidence you are prepared, or able, to give. It may, for example, be the difference between the amount you paid for the Woolworths shares and the amount you received when you sold them (or the value of the Woolworths shares you still hold). Alternatively, loss might be assessed on the basis of the difference between the price you paid for the shares and their true or real value at the time of purchase (that is, the price you paid for the shares was inflated).
There are also other methodologies that a Court might adopt.
At the appropriate time, we will be able to provide you with a loss calculation, to give you an idea of your possible loss on one of the methods which might be employed by the Court. However, all claims will be the subject of further investigation and legal advice and your loss figure may change.
