René Müller, CEO of Fortune Management Inc.: "Following the downright implosion of the valuations in the german bio-diesel market, it became obvious that our substantial, via pre-IPO bond financed, investment into GATE was impossible to be refinanced by way of IPO or trade-sale. The ensuing intensive negotiations with the creditors led to the signing of a principal Restructuring Agreement already in July 2008. It was due to the rapid and extensive changes in the economic environment, that parts of it had to be renegotiated before this closing. The now - in cooperation with all stakeholders - closed Agreement not only secures the going concern of Fortune but also paves the way for a greatest possible recuperation of the investments. Additionally, thanks to a relatively small dilution it conserves the value and optionality of the equity."
