Inside information disclosure pursuant to Art. 17 of the Market Abuse Regulation 596/2014
September 5, 2017, Luxembourg / Zwanenburg, The Netherlands. 3W Power S.A. (ISIN LU1072910919, 3W9K), the holding of AEG Power Solutions Group, concludes that as a necessary and final step of the group’s financial restructuring a substantial deleveraging and balance-sheet restructuring is required to allow for measures to improve liquidity and operational financing of the group and related growth of the business. To achieve this, 3W Power S.A. and key stakeholders are in on-going discussions and have entered into a non-binding memorandum of understanding outlining key elements and next steps of the envisaged restructuring as well as pre-requisites to provide additional capital. The company will therefore postpone the publication of the results for first half year (H1) and Q2 2017.
To validate the group’s business planning and the restructuring measures required, a third-party expert will be promptly mandated to prepare a restructuring opinion for the group. The Board of 3W Power S.A. assumes that the required restructuring measures can be implemented, and will closely monitor and assess the likelihood of the restructuring process going forward.
