While Teneo Restructuring is in charge of the liquidation proceedings, some investors, particularly those with small stakes in the firm, can be adjudged as not having a visible edge in reclaiming their funds.

It is not immediately clear what the unstaked funds are meant for, as no comment or reference has been gleaned from 3AC or its representatives.
