This doesn't apply to the company's sole director Ralan Group's founder William O'Dwyer. According to Financial Review, O’Dwyer spent some of the investors' money on Bitcoin and lavish vacations. However, it is not clear how much BTC he bought with the funds that he withdrew from this one-man apartment developer. 

Back in September, The Syndey Morning Herald revealed the O'Dwyer's financial records, which showed he and his wife spent more than $41,000 on their company-paid Amex cards. His O'Dwyer is acting coy about all these expenses, his lawyer explained that he was the majority shareholder in the Ralan Group.

“Any personal expenses of Mr O’Dwyer which are alleged to have been paid by the Ralan Group were either in lieu of drawings or wages or other benefits to which he was entitled,” the statement read.
