The Tri-ang group of companies were forced to call in the receiver in August 1971 due to losses in the groups overseas subsidiaries.

The appointed receiver for the Rovex controlled part of the company wasted no time in creating a new company called Pocketmoney Toys Ltd.

Dunbee-combex-marks acquired this company in January 1972 the group was renamed Rovex Ltd.
