SKW: insolvency plan can now be executed


DGAP-Media / 29.11.2018 / 16:24

By release procedure, the Appellate Court Munich (Landgericht München) rejects two complaints against the approval of the insolvency plan and thereby clears the way


Munich, November 29, 2018 - The way to achieve a financial restructuring of SKW Stahl-Metallurgie Holding AG is now cleared: By decision in date November 28, 2018 the Appellate Court Munich (Landgericht München) has rejected the last pending of two complaints filed against the confirmation of the insolvency plan by the competent insolvency court on August 14, 2018, by granting the motions of relief according to sec. 253 para. 4 Insolvency Code, as requested by the Company. Basically, this provision allows to reject a complaint in an expedited proceeding, if the disadvantages of further delaying the execution of the insolvency plan prevail.

Thereby the insolvency plan comes into force and can be executed. The plan determines all measures for the financial restructuring of the Company. Current shareholders exit the Company by transfer of their shares to the US investor Speyside Equity. Furthermore, after a capital decrease to zero, the insolvency plan provides for a swap of a major part of credit claims acquired by the Speyside Equity into equity of SKW Holding.

With the implementation of these capital-related measures, SKW's shares will become delisted (DE000SKWM021). For all non-subordinated insolvency creditors, the insolvency plan provides for full economic satisfaction of 100% of their respective claims.

Dr. Kay Michel, CEO of SKW: "I am very pleased that the court has accepted our motion of release and the irresponsible legal delaying tactics of a group of shareholders surrounding the chairman of the supervisory board Dr. Olaf Marx have thus been stopped. Now we will finally have again a positive equity and a gearing-rate in accordance with market standards. Because SKW Group is operating in a very challenging market environment, which requires our full attention we have to focus again on business challenges and intensify our look ahead."

HELMA Eigenheimbau: Klarer Kauf

Die HELMA Eigenheimbau hat mit dem Zugang weiterer Ferienimmobilienprojekte das potenzielle Umsatzvolumen um 150 Mio. € gesteigert. Ohnehin verfügt die Gesellschaft über einen umfangreichen Grundstücksbestand für das Bauträgergeschäft, womit in den kommenden Geschäftsjahren Umsätze in Höhe von über 1,4 Mrd. € realisiert werden könnten. Damit dürften unsere Schätzungen, in denen wir ein nachhaltiges Überschreiten der Umsatzmarke von 300 Mio. € annehmen, gut unterfüttert sein. Bei einem Kursziel von 65,00 € ist die HELMA-Aktie ein klarer Kauf.
