Nuremberg – The restructuring plan of Leoni AG received the approval of the required majorities at a court meeting convened for this purpose. This sets the path for the restructuring plan to become legally binding.
The Nuremberg Restructuring Court has announced that the still required ruling will be issued on 21 June 2023. Leoni can then proceed with the implementation of the financial restructuring as planned. It provides for a strong strategic owner for the company, an investment company held by Stefan Pierer. Leoni will be substantially deleveraged and provided with fresh liquidity, financing is secured until end of 2026.
“With the restructuring plan, Leoni will sustainably return to financial stability and can continue its operational recovery in the coming years“, said Hans-Joachim Ziems, Speaker of the Executive Board and Chief Restructuring Officer (CRO).
The restructuring plan provides for substantial contributions from debt and equity holders. The financial restructuring only affects Leoni AG, and not its subsidiaries, their suppliers, customers and employees. The financial restructuring is implemented under the German Corporate Stabilization and Restructuring Act
