What we did
Capitalmind conducted a review of strategic options including a targeted international approach with a focus on strategic investors, supporting the creditors‘ trustee Dr. Holger Leichtle of Schultze & Braun, general representative Martin Mucha of GRUB BRUGGER and the owner & CEO Albrecht Maier, in the context of AWG’s insolvency in self-administration (“Schutzschirmverfahren”). Within a few weeks, Capitalmind provided detailed feedback from the decision-makers of relevant buyers to the AWG stakeholders. Due to its international reach and profound expertise in distressed situations, Capitalmind assured a swift delivery of qualified offers to the creditors’ committee as a basis for its decision-making process.
