G-fashion Group

A last-minute solution was able to be found during the self-administration proceedings of the well-known G-fashion Group. Despite the difficult conditions caused by the corona pandemic, an investor was found. While the investor process was ongoing, the textile retailer had to temporarily close its branches due to the lockdown. The contracts for the transferred restructuring, which had already gone through final negotiations, could therefore no longer be concluded as planned. While the management was already preparing to shut down operations and the branches were carrying out clearance sales after being partially opened, an agreement was finally reached with an investment company. Numerous employees have therefore kept their jobs. The PLUTA experts acted as custodians for three companies in the group and supported the proceedings in the interests of the creditors.
