Good news for creditors in the insolvency proceedings for clinic Krankenhaus Land Hadeln Otterndorf GmbH: insolvency administrator Dr Christian Kaufmann from PLUTA Rechtsanwalts GmbH has made a further payment of 50%. A seven-digit amount had already been paid out at the start of the week. All in all, therefore, a 100% dividend has been distributed to creditors, who have now recovered all of their money just one-and-a-half years since the company filed for insolvency.
PLUTA restructuring expert Dr Kaufmann said, “I am pleased that we have achieved a 100% dividend for all creditors and that all claims have therefore been satisfied. This exceptionally high recovery rate has been secured thanks to the continuation of the business, the fair purchase price and our team’s successful assertion of claims brought to contest debtor transactions.” In addition to attorney Dr Kaufmann, the PLUTA team also includes attorneys Mr Peter Roeger and Mr André Gildehaus and economist Mr Jürgen Schendel.
On 1 July 2021, the Local Court of Cuxhaven opened the insolvency proceedings and appointed PLUTA restructuring expert Dr Kaufmann as insolvency administrator for Krankenhaus Land Hadeln Otterndorf GmbH. Provisional insolvency proceedings had been opened for the clinic’s assets in May 2021, with Dr Kaufmann being appointed provisional administrator. The proceedings had previously been conducted under debtor-in-possession management and were then transferred to ordinary insolvency proceedings.
The clinic remained fully operational during the proceedings, with all medical services still being offered.
The PLUTA team secured the future of the clinic with its some 235 employees through an insolvency plan solution that involved the Cuxhaven district acquiring it. As part of the remunicipalisation, the equity interests were transferred so that the organisation could start with a new ownership structure in October 2021. A large majority of creditors (approx. 98%) had approved the insolvency plan.
