Negotiations with Faroe fishing company successfully completed

Kiel, 6th February 2015 – A few days after the opening of insolvency proceedings over the assets of the Larsen Danish Seafood Group (Case No .: 56 IN 294/14) by the District Court Flensburg on February 1st 2015 Wilhelm Salim Khan Durani for Cornelius + Krage, the law firm acting as insolvency administrator in Germany, announced the successful conclusion of sales negotiations. Together with his Danish colleague Finn Lynge Jepsen he could sell the two German companies Larsen Danish Seafood GmbH and the Larsen Danish Seafood (Leegina) GmbH as well as the trademark Larsen, registered in Denmark, to the fishing company Christian i Grótinum from the Faroe Islands. “The sites in Harrislee and Bremerhaven will remain and the majority of the over 300 jobs will be untouched,” says Wilhelm Salim Khan Durani. “We are pleased to have found a forward-focused solution with a partner to whom Larsen is an ideal addition to the portfolio.” The negotiations were supported by Frankfurt based Distressed M&A specialist Rödl Consulting.
