euro adhoc: GARANT SCHUH + MODE AG / Insolvency Trustee announces quick resumption of central settlement (E)

Disclosure announcement transmitted by euro adhoc. The issuer is responsible for the content of this announcement.

GARANT SCHUH + MODE AG will resume its core business, the central settlement, as of the 25th decade. This is the result of intensive negotiations that the company’s preliminary insolvency trustee, Friedrich-Wilhelm Metzeler, has led with all parties involved over the last few days. An agreement with the credit insurers was reached at the beginning of the week. On Tuesday, an arrangement with the banks that are most important to GARANT’s core business was achieved. Subject to certain approvals, the banks grant an insolvency loan of Euro 15 million. The consortium of banks has announced its final decision for the weekend.
In the insolvency proceedings for GARANT, the formal opening is expected for early December. The creditors meeting will most probably convene by the mid-February 2005.
