Schefenacker refinancing agreed

Schefenacker reports that its bondholders have agreed today, at a company voluntary arrangement meeting, to take:

  • EUR 7.5 million cash;
  • 5% of the equity; and
  • warrants that could raise the equity to 15%.

The shareholder, Dr Alfred Schefenacker, retains 25% of the equity but has contributed:

  • EUR 20 million of new money;
  • his personal equity in the Engelmann subsidiary; and
  • the cancellation of EUR 100 million of shareholder loans.

Senior creditors now hold 70% of the equity.

The success of the migration now depends on the operational restructuring that Stephen Taylor has been managing during the last few months of stakeholder negotiations - he claims "a solid first quarter performance".
