The Oldenburg Restructuring Evening is an exchange format in the Weser-Ems region for bank representatives with restructuring and reorganisation responsibilities that has grown over many years.
At the end of March it was that time again: comes invited to the Oldenburger Saniererabend – this year for the first time in a digital format due to the COVID-19 circumstances.
Under the special conditions of the pandemic, it was necessary to realize the event in a virtual framework and at the same time to embed the established structure of open exchange possibilities.
All the more pleasing was this year’s lively interest on the part of the banks, which was also made clear by the increased number of participants. In addition to almost 30 new and familiar faces from savings banks, credit unions, 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 began 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 significant effects according to his assessment.
The event was concluded by a lively round of discussions, ranging from the possibilities for banks to be involved in self-administration proceedings to the new tightening of the risk assessment of credit exposures.
We thank all participants for their interest and look forward to meeting again soon in person.
The introductory topics of the evening with the survey results can be found in our presentation:
