PLUTA partner Willrodt is provisional insolvency administrator of listed company windeln.de SE

  • Business operations to continue

  • Investor process to be set up as quickly as possible

 

Munich, 7 November 2022

windeln.de SE (ISIN DE000WNDL300 and DE000WNDL318) filed for insolvency last Friday. As a result, the Munich Local Court today ordered provisional insolvency administration over the assets of the listed group and appointed Ivo-Meinert Willrodt of PLUTA Rechtsanwalts GmbH as provisional insolvency administrator.

Together with CEO Bastian Salewsky, the provisional insolvency administrator informed the employees in Germany about the current status at a meeting today. Business operations will continue. The online store is expected to be reopened in a few days after the completion of maintenance work, after which customers will be able to place their orders via the online stores in Germany, Switzerland and China without any restrictions.

The reason for the application is liquidity difficulties after the provision of further funds as part of a capital increase did not materialize. The Management Board therefore filed for insolvency last Friday.

Bastian Salewsky, the Group's new CEO since April 2022, explains, "The first half of 2022 was challenging. However, the company was able to improve adjusted earnings. Our course of cost savings showed effect, but unfortunately we were not able to carry out the necessary capital increase. The filing was therefore unavoidable. We will now support the provisional insolvency administrator the best way possible. The goal is to find an investor for windeln.de."

PLUTA restructuring expert Ivo-Meinert Willrodt says: "We are currently getting an overview of the group's situation and have already made an important decision. Business operations will continue. Customers will soon be able to order online again. In the coming days, together with the Executive Board, we will talk with all key business partners with the aim of stabilizing business operations."

After that, the PLUTA team will initiate an investor process as soon as possible. In this process, national and international investors are to be approached in order to maintain operations. Ivo-Meinert Willrodt will be supported in the restructuring team by attorney Wolfgang Bernhardt and Hans-Christian Källner.
