The draft of the claim for damages includes a time limit of ten days during which the general partner and its management has been given a final opportunity to reach an out-of-court set-tlement on the damages suffered by the limited partnership. The letter includes an an-nouncement that the lawsuit will be submitted after the expiry of the above period of ten days. The claim is based on the joint and several liability of Leonardo Venture Capital GmbH and its managing directors; it comprises damages provisionally set at approximately 5 million euros.
