CMS advises Bundesrepublik Deutschland – Finanzagentur GmbH again on stabilisation of MV-Werften Group


Hamburg – The MV-Werften Group can continue its business operations after receiving a comprehensive stabilisation package. Following the EUR 193 million bridging loan granted in October 2020 and repaid upon delivery of the Endeavor 1 shipbuilding project, the company is set to receive further funding to secure its shipbuilding operations and to hedge complex ship financing arrangements. This further funding of up to EUR 300 million will be granted in the form of a subordinated loan and a silent participation by the Economic Stabilisation Fund (Wirtschaftsstabilisierungsfonds, WSF) set up by the German government.

A CMS team headed by lead partner Dr Christian von Lenthe advised Bundesrepublik Deutschland – Finanzagentur GmbH on all legal aspects of granting the funding package to the MV-Werften Group. The CMS team has previously advised the German government on other stabilisation packages from the Economic Stabilisation Fund. Examples include the granting of a loan to Adler Modemärkte AG during preliminary self-administration proceedings and the stabilisation of the Frimo Group.
