Debt-to-equity swap on the bond issued by Laurèl

17. Janu­ary 2018

Munich - Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek advi­sed Asch­heim-based Munich Brand Hub AG on the exchange of receiva­bles from a bond issued by Laurèl GmbH into shares in Munich Brand Hub AG (so-called “debt-to-equity swap”). The consul­tancy also inclu­ded the listing of the shares on the Munich Stock Exchange.

Laurèl GmbH is an inter­na­tio­nally active fashion company whose assets were subject to insol­vency procee­dings in self-admi­­nis­­tra­­tion. In 2012, Laurèl GmbH had issued a bond with a total volume of EUR 20 million. The insol­vency plan drawn up as part of the insol­vency procee­dings provi­ded for an offer to bond­hol­ders to acquire shares in Munich Brand Hub AG in exchange for the claims arising from this bond. Munich Brand Hub AG is a newly foun­ded company which, in accordance with the insol­vency plan, had previously acqui­red all shares in Laurèl GmbH.

An expe­ri­en­ced team of experts from the Colo­gne and Munich offices of Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek advi­sed Munich Brand Hub AG in connec­tion with the imple­men­ta­tion of the debt-to-equity swap, in parti­cu­lar on the prepa­ra­tion of the secu­ri­ties prospec­tus appro­ved by the German Federal Finan­cial Super­vi­sory Autho­rity on Janu­ary 9, 2018 for the acqui­si­tion offer as well as the struc­tu­ring and imple­men­ta­tion of the indi­vi­dual sett­le­ment steps. The advice mainly concer­ned issues of corpo­rate, capi­tal market and insol­vency law.
