SANHA GmbH & Co KG’s Corporate Bond Adaptation


Heuking Kühn Lüer Wojtek advised SANHA GmbH & Co KG on adapting its 2013/2023 corporate bond.

The bondholders’ meeting had approved the adaptation concept in agreement with management and the joint representative, One Square Advisory Services GmbH.

Among other things, the adaptation concept provides for extending the bond’s term by three years until 2026, introducing a reduced graduated interest rate, increasing the redemption amount to 105% to make up for the reduction in interest rates in the years 2021 to 2023, and adapting the covenants and the negative obligation. In close cooperation with SANHA GmbH & Co KG management, One Square Advisory Services GmbH had developed a concept that is intended to give the company the necessary scope of action in view of the expected negative effects of the global corona crisis to secure liquidity and to ensure that it would be able to meet its obligations to the holders of partial debentures.
