The company is seeking funds to replace a deposit that has been seized by one of its lenders. Babcock is negotiating with a syndicate of 25 banks and hopes to make a statement by Wednesday, it said in a statement.
The company modeled itself on Macquarie Group, buying assets, pooling them into funds and charging a management fee. It has some A$3.1 billion of loans that it is selling assets to repay and has cut about 66% of its workers.
Babcock's stock have shed 90% of its value this year and last traded at 25 Australian cents on November 19 before being suspended.
Wachovia Corp. this month said it may seize collateral on a $112 million loan.
