Insolvency proceedings opened

02.11.2009

Munich, November 2, 2009 - In line with schedule the insolvency court, Munich Municipal Court, opened insolvency proceedings on the assets of ESCADA AG yesterday, November 1, 2009, at 12 noon. Effective as of yesterday, the power of administration and control over all assets and the power of representation of the company has therefore been transferred to the duly appointed insolvency administrator, Attorney at Law Dr. Christian Gerloff from Munich, who had so far acted as preliminary insolvency administrator. On August 13, 2009 ESCADA AG had filed for an insolvency petition because of impending illiquidity.

The insolvency administrator is engaged in advanced negotiations with a number of interested parties and is pursuing the objective of the company's going concern. These negotiations are unaffected by the opening of the insolvency proceedings. The aim is to find a new perspective for the companies of the ESCADA Group in the near future. The company's Board of Management continues to support this process as well as the operative management of the company.
