Crestyl to lead ECM out of bankruptcy?

The Czech developer ECM is reported to have been taken out bankruptcy and placed in a temporary legal limbo zone as a Prague court decides whether to accept a re-organization arrangement suggested by the company. The idea apparently is for ECM to relinquish board positions to representatives of the Prague-based developer Crestyl. Its director Omar Koleilat would become chairman of the board. One of the other options that had been in play earlier this week reportedly envisioned Anton Hopfgartner (Property Solutions) filling that role.

The liquidator in charge of ECM until now, Ivo Hala believes a re-organization isn’t feasible, as it would require an influx of new money to the company. “Bankruptcy proceedings seem to be more advantageous because they offer greater satisfaction for the creditors in a shorter time horizon,” he wrote, according to court materials cited by CTK.

However, some of ECM’s creditors seem to be leaning the other way, including Astin Capital Management, which is representing bond holders with CZK 3.1bn. The decision on re-organization now lies with the courts. (As ever, public¬†comments or private emails on the issue are more than welcome)
