According to an ASIC notice, Orzora Pty Ltd - Trading name: Sign A Rama Pakenham - appointed administrator Brendan Nixon of SM Solvency Accountants in Brisbane on Monday.

Owner/director Anthony Dissanayake had run the sign franchise business for eight years, most recently with a staff of three, including a production manager and installer.

The head of Signarama Australia, Evan Foster, told Wide Format Online the move is related to lockdown restrictions imposed in Victoria over the past year.

“It’s partly Covid-related,” Foster said. “Of course, Victoria was hit pretty hard over the past 12 months. All of our franchisees down there have been incredibly resilient over the various lockdowns that they’ve had. We’re seeing excellent numbers coming out the other side of the pandemic.

“We’re confident that we’re going to have a new franchise owner operating the business imminently. We’ve had a strong start to the year all across the country and we’re really optimistic about our prospects in 2021.”
