We would also like to thank our colleagues, service providers, clients and external consultants. Thanks to the trusting and professional cooperation, we have been able to successfully complete numerous projects. We are looking forward to the next decades and will continue to be passionate about our work.

Lively interest in this year's restructuring evening in Oldenburg

At the end of March, the time had come again: comes hosted the Oldenburg restructuring evening - this year for the first time in a digital format due to the COVID 19 circumstances.

The Oldenburg restructuring evening is an exchange format that has grown over many years in the Weser-Ems region for bank representatives with restructuring and reorganisation responsibilities.

Under the special conditions of the pandemic, it was necessary to hold the event in a virtual setting and at the same time embed the established structure of open exchange opportunities.

This year's lively interest on the part of the banks was all the more gratifying, which was also made clear by the increased number of participants. In addition to almost 30 new and familiar faces from savings banks, Volksbanks, state banks and private banks from the Weser-Ems region, this year we were also able to welcome individual bankers from neighbouring regions.

The event started with a short survey on the current restructuring and insolvency situation in the institutions before Mr Silvio Höfer from anchor Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft in Hanover gave an exciting insight into his work in the context of a self-administration for a special engine manufacturer. Dr. Christoph Bode, lawyer and insolvency expert from Oldenburg, then reported on the changes brought about by the SanInsFoG and the decisive effects according to his assessment.

The event was concluded by a lively discussion, starting with the possibilities of involving banks in self-administration proceedings and ending with the new tightening of the risk assessment of credit exposures.

We thank all participants for their interest and look forward to meeting again soon.


You can find the introductory topics of the evening with the survey results in our presentation:

Webinar series "Right now: Strengthening your own system!"

The Corona crisis has been challenging us for over a year now. Especially in difficult times, companies reveal weaknesses that were not so noticeable before in good times. For example, before the crisis, the ability to quickly and flexibly map different scenarios in financial planning was not necessary for many successful companies and accordingly not "priority A". In the wake of the Corona pandemic, however, this ability has become essential. Companies can therefore learn from the current situation and make the right adjustments to be prepared for the future.

Zahlen im Griff?

In this context, from mid-April we are planning a webinar series together with the Boettcher.Academy entitled

Genau jetzt: Das eigene System stärken

The series kicks off with the topic:

3. Teil: Unternehmer lernen aus der Krise
