Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - - BUSINESS -

THE court­room bat­tle for Jenny Hut­son, a high-pro­file merchant banker and for­mer chair­woman of child­care out­fit G8 Ed­u­ca­tion, has been ex­tended.

Ms Hut­son ap­peared in the Bris­bane Mag­is­trates Court yesterday for a brief men­tion of crim­i­nal charges re­lat­ing to a takeover bid by G8 for Affin­ity Ed­u­ca­tion in 2015.

Ms Hut­son, also head of merchant bank Welling­ton Cap­i­tal, is de­fend­ing the charges. They in­clude 10 counts of al­legedly hav­ing pro­vided false or mis­lead­ing in­for­ma­tion to a fi­nan­cial mar­ket oper­a­tor. It was ad­journed for an­other men­tion on De­cem­ber 21.

Ms Hut­son was charged in April af­ter an in­ves­ti­ga­tion by the Aus­tralian In­vest­ments and Se­cu­ri­ties Com­mis­sion.
