GERRY WEBER International AG arranges bridge loan and grants purchase option for HALLHUBER GmbH
(Halle/Westphalia, 7. February 2019) Within the scope of the ongoing restructuring of Gerry Weber, GERRY WEBER International AG arranged a bridge loan of EUR 10 million for subsidiary HALLHUBER GmbH with an investor. Furthermore, the investor acquires receivables of GERRY WEBER Group companies against HALLHUBER, largely already subordinated, at a purchase price of about EUR 1 million. At the same time, a purchase option for HALLHUBER GmbH was granted. In case of execution, GERRY WEBER either retains a 14 % stake in HALLHUBER or, alternatively retains a 12% stake plus purchase price of EUR 500,000 at its own discretion. The purchasing option for HALLHUBER is subject to several pre-conditions and can only be exercised upon fulfillment, which is expected for May 2019.
With the proceeds from the bridging loan, the ongoing business operations of HALLHUBER are safeguarded for the time being. The agreed transaction is an essential step towards the operational and financial restructuring of GERRY WEBER Group.
