Investor exercises purchasing option for HALLHUBER

- Fund managed by Robus Capital Management takes over majority share

- GERRY WEBER retains a stake of 12% in HALLHUBER

 

(Halle/Westphalia, 8 July 2019) A fund managed by Robus Capital Management took over the majority share of HALLHUBER GmbH from GERRY WEBER International AG. Within the scope of the ongoing restructuring under self-administration, GERRY WEBER granted a purchase option to the investor in February. In exchange, the investor had provided a bridging loan for HALLHUBER, which has since been replaced by long-term financing. According to the agreement, GERRY WEBER retains a stake of 12% in HALLHUBER. Furthermore, GERRY WEBER receives a cash payment of EUR 500.000 from the investor.

Background
Since 25 January 2019, GERRY WEBER International AG undergoes insolvency proceedings under self-administration. Proceedings were opened on 1 April 2019. At the subsidiary GERRY WEBER Retail GmbH & Co. KG, insolvency proceedings under self-administration were opened on 1 May 2019. In both cases, the respective court appointed lawyer Stefan Meyer of PLUTA Rechtsanwalts GmbH as trustee. The Managing Board of GERRY WEBER International AG, consisting of Johannes Ehling (Spokesman of the Supervisory Board as well as Chief Sales Officer and Chief Digital Officer), Florian Frank (Chief Restructuring Officer) and Urun Gursu (Chief Product Officer) are supported by Chief Representative Dr. Christian Gerloff, a lawyer well-versed in the fashion industry. Regardless of the ongoing insolvency proceedings, financing of the ongoing operations of GERRY WEBER is secured well into the year 2020.

GERRY WEBER International AG, headquartered in Halle/Westphalia, is a worldwide operating group, uniting three strong brand families under one roof: GERRY WEBER, TAIFUN and SAMOON. Furthermore, GERRY WEBER holds a non-strategic stake of 12% in HALLHUBER GmbH.

HanseYachts: „Der ideale Zeitpunkt für den Kauf“

Die Übernahme des Katamaran-Herstellers Privilège bringt die HanseYachts AG dem Umsatzziel von 200 Mio. Euro einen bedeutenden Schritt näher. „Der Katamaran-Markt ist das derzeit am stärksten wachsende Segment im Yacht-Geschäft. Privilège ist weltweit in Preis und Qualität die Nummer eins“, so CEO Dr. Jens Gerhardt. Zudem sei der Deal ein wichtiger Faktor, um die EBITDA-Marge auf 10 bis 12 % zu steigern.

Fonds Research 2019: S.E.A. Asian High Yield Bond bietet attraktive Investitionschance

Auch 2019 hat die GBC AG unter der Vielzahl an Publikumsfonds neun „Fonds Champions“ herausgefiltert. Darunter auch den S.E.A. Asian High Yield Bond (ISIN: LU1138637738), der eine gute Anlagechance anbietet mit einer Strategie, die kaum reproduzierbar ist. Insbesondere vor dem Hintergrund des anhaltenden Niedrigzinsniveaus sehen wir den Anleihefonds als äußerst attraktive Investitionschance, um nachhaltige und volatilitätsarme Renditen zu erzielen. Wir haben den S.E.A. Asian High Yield Bond mit 4 von 5 Falken eingestuft.
