leave New Zealand with the intention of—


avoiding payment of money due to the company; or


avoiding examination in relation to the affairs of the company; or


avoiding compliance with an order of the court or some other obligation under this Part in relation to the affairs of the company; or


conceal or remove property of the company with the intention of preventing or delaying the liquidator taking custody or control of it; or
