Afilias have officially responded to AusRegistry’s “Setting The Record Straight” post from last week.
Most notably, Afilias write:
Afilias sent staff to Australia to assist AusRegistry with their registry code and DNS software, and was a shareholder of AusRegistry until its acquisition by Neustar in 2015. It seems that AusRegistry portrays itself as a small, local business when it’s convenient, but intersperses this with the global might of its parent company, Neustar, which is in actual fact a large US-based company.

UPDATE – BLOG LINK NO LONGER WORKS
For some reason, within 30 minutes of us posting a link and quoting the public article, Afilias took the blog post down.
We had already made a screenshot of it, so here is the full post they publicly posted, before taking it down.
