Ex-CEO Thomas Middelhoff Arcandor files for bankruptcy – THE WORLD

The former top manager Thomas Middelhoff is insolvent. At the Magistrate Court in Bielefeld former head of Bertelsmann and the Karstadt Arcandor mother had applied for insolvency proceedings on his own property. The court subsequently the Bielefeld lawyer Thorsten Fuest from the law firm Brinkmann & amp; Partners used as provisional liquidator.

The crash of the former “child prodigy of the German economy,” as Middelhoff was called in his best days as a manager, so that goes into an incredible panache on. Administrator Fuest will now get a full picture of how high are the claims against Middelhoff and how much wealth the 61-year-old is currently even still has. That will certainly “take a few weeks,” it said on the part of the court.

Especially Fuest already speaks of “complex financial circumstances”. Following is then judged whether after the preliminary insolvency and due process is initiated. During this time period Middelhoff, who sits currently following a conviction by the Regional Court of Essen in custody no longer be any remaining assets have.

liquidator must account transaction approve

“It may spend no more money. And everyone who owes him money must not pay him,” said a spokesman of the court. Each account transaction must be approved by the administrator -. A fact that an experienced decision-makers as Middelhoff has incredibly hurt, as experts suggest

Middelhoff’s lawyer Hartmut Fromm established the Revelation so that his client was not currently in a position to “fulfill a due income tax owed by the Treasury.” Although an action against that claim was pending, but was rejected a stay of execution

What’s more, the tax office Bielefeld outer city has not given the fulfilling demands apparently before Middelhoff even filed for bankruptcy. However, the Authority will not comment with regard to tax secrecy. The court wants to can not comment and only confirms their own application.

turning point in the life of “Big T”.

The comes as no surprise to experts. Because only rise to the possibility of the so-called residual debt for Middelhoff. It allows indebted people, after a good behavior period of six years to be completely debt free.

Middelhoff’s financial situation was in the last few months repeatedly subject to various legal proceedings, has run against the former top managers or Middelhoff even brought against banks and individuals. A consistent picture has it apparently never found.

Judge John Smith, in November 2014 the district court food for embezzlement in 27 cases and tax evasion in Middelhoff three cases had convicted, in any event, was surprised at his then two-hour verdict that even after several months of negotiations could not be completely resolved, how much wealth Middelhoff at all.

No later than this method, against whose decision the Middelhoff lawyers have filed an appeal, marked a turning point in the life of” Big T. “as the manager Middelhoff was only too happy to call. Because since then no longer fighting the former multimillionaire for a new job, but his freedom.

dispute with Sal. Oppenheim

So far, however vain. With several habeas appointments could Middelhoff and his lawyers, the court failed to convince that in the 61-year-old who had always stated in his last public appearances as a principal residence St. Tropez, not a flight risk. Even as close friends and family members of Middelhoff offered a deposit of almost 900,000 euros, this could not sway the judges. Whether the bankruptcy petition because something changes, it will turn out in the coming weeks.

Dates in any case would Middelhoff, who claims to be as Bertelsmann manager the Internet to have brought to Germany, enough, namely the German courts. Part of the Ex-Karstadt CEO is sued for millions of dollars. And sometimes he accuses himself for the release of large amounts of money. In July last year, he underlined that it was not to be broke.

He alone had the problem that he is not receiving its liquidity by the Bank Sal. Oppenheim’ll blocked. “Since 2009, the Sal. Oppenheim blocked the deposit accounts of Thomas Middelhoff related to investments of spouses Middelhoff under which long-term total assets managed by Oppenheim-Esch,” says lawyer Fromm. For this purpose, as well as the release of further deposits, a dispute might be brought before the District Court of Cologne. A final judgment is currently not foreseeable.

creditors welcome insolvency proceedings

Middelhoff’s claims in the various processes estimated with a three-digit million range. Conversely, he sees himself apparently walkouts in the amount of 90 million euros compared with, they say. Therefore the creditors welcome the bankruptcy petition and hope for long-awaited information on the financial conditions.

“We welcome the fact that there are creditors now in an orderly and asset situation of Mr Middelhoff will be fully investigated by the insolvency administrator, “said example Claus Thiery, the lawyer of management consultants Roland Berger, the” world. “

Berger, with which Middelhoff actually on the Thursday before the District Court of Bielefeld should argue, requires Middelhoff about 6.7 million euros. The trial date has picked up on Tuesday morning at the request of Middelhoff lawyers, the Regional Court of Bielefeld. The Berger side had no objection, it said in a statement the court. If and when a new date was scheduled, am not certain.


For insolvency – tax claim brings Middelhoff into trouble – Süddeutsche.de

The former top manager, who is in prison for four and a half months, and his creditors Berger, the doyen of business consultants in this country. Middelhoff called Berger once called his “father’s former friend”. Meanwhile, there’s nothing left of sympathy. Berger and he quarrel bitterly over millions of euros they charge each other mutually. Whether it will ever come to this process, however, has become questionable.

The process with the reference number 1 O 210/14 is indefinitely on hold, because things have changed. On Tuesday afternoon Middelhoff put through its lawyers, the District Court of Bielefeld a request to open insolvency proceedings over his private assets. As a provisional liquidator, the Court of a lawyer Thorsten Fuest. He wants to be first of all make “a picture of the complex financial circumstances” Middelhoff and then clarify “in dialogue with him and his creditors” of the procedure.

creditors want 90 million euro

His client was “currently not in a position to meet a due income tax owed by the Treasury,” said Middelhoff’s lawyer Hartmut Fromm. About a lawsuit against this demand the competent tax court has not yet decided. Well but it rejected a request Middelhoff to stay the driving of the tax liability. To ensure that the state belongs to Middelhoff’s creditors. The other creditors, as his former asset manager Josef Esch, Roland Berger, Bank Sal. Oppenheim, the Berlin housing association Gewobag or the Arcandor insolvency, require about 90 million euros.

When applying for a Privatinsolvenz- process recovers the crash of Middelhoff again to ride. No German top managers have experienced similar. In July his creditors Berger forced him to submit a sworn information assets, commonly known as: bankruptcy. Then Middelhoff fled through a spectacular jump out of the window on the first floor in front of the photographers that lurked at the court entrance. A few weeks later distrained in Essen court bailiff its an expensive wristwatch, which was subsequently foreclosed. Since November 14, 2014 Middelhoff is imprisoned for a flight risk in custody in the prison food after him, the district court had sentenced to three years in prison for embezzlement and tax evasion. It was about flights in private jets and other issues that are deemed the court to be private, but Middelhoff Arcandor had them pay

The decision is not yet final. Middelhoff’s lawyers have filed an appeal to the Federal Court. Their attempts to get Middelhoff free, all of them have failed so far. A few days ago, the Oberlandesgericht Hamm refused a request for a flight risk, although family and friends EUR 900 000 deposit offered.

Unclear financial situation

But have as much money Thomas Middelhoff and his family at all? How much you ever heard of the swanky villa high above Saint-Tropez and the equally spacious property with riding and tennis courts in Bielefeld? From the luxury cars and other status symbols?

On the EU dairy market a new era begins: The odds that should control the three decades of production, are eliminated. The farmers get the more entrepreneurial freedom – but also new risks.

When customers in the supermarket to buy a liter of fresh milk are the complex rules of European agricultural market quite far away. For dairy farmers, the requirements from Brussels but are an important foundation of their daily business.

And there after 31 years is now a real turning point: For the month changes the milk quota falls away as a protective mechanism. You should establish with the help of limits to production a balance between supply and demand.

That after the end Odds again arise butter mountains and milk lakes in Europe, the industry does not feared. As well as the prices in the supermarket – for dairy producers a new freedom, which also brings uncertainty with it begins.

What has brought the milk quota?

Federal Agriculture Minister Christian Schmidt (CSU) do not mourn the quota for: “State intervention in the market is not a viable solution and in view of the global market no longer realistic.” The official government balance for milk quota falls because even rather disappointing.

Instead reliably stabilize the income of dairy farmers, the prices of raw milk in the past 30 years have fluctuated despite the rate by up to 20 cents per kilo. Many farms disappeared. The number of milk producers in Germany declined since 1984 from 369 000 to 77 000

Video:. No desire for expensive sandwich spread? Easy to make Nutella

Why should cease the rate now?

When the milk quota was introduced in 1984, there was too much milk in the European market. And therefore the income of farmers – – Due to the limitation of the bid prices should be backed up. Who exceeded the allowed quota had to pay a tax. But now expect politicians and experts with an increasing demand for dairy products in the world – especially in countries catch up economically. Of these export opportunities to benefit European farmers.

What does that mean Odds from consumers?

“Last twitches” of the quota were felt in the past few days yet, as the Information and Research Centre of the food industry observed. In order not to risk more penalties, some farmers have cut back production by slaughtering Cows or reduced amounts of food. Internationally decreased deliveries so that the last relatively low prices rise again, as the Dairy Industry Association analyzed.

Also, consumers would therefore expect in the coming months with higher prices . Beyond the exports might focus more on smaller farms own markets, for example, with regional organic milk.

What do the dairy farmers?

“The quota is a relic of an agricultural policies of the past,” says the vice president of the Farmers’ Union, Udo Folgart. Now, the companies would get more freedom of choice, barns and milking could better utilize and reduce their fixed costs. The Small Farmers’ Association but also looks problematic effects when the ratio eliminates the penalties for exceeding the limit. This makes it verbillige when businesses even more expansion set and buy more milk cows. This is likely to happen but especially in areas with favorable pasture conditions. On the other hand could, for example in the low mountain ranges many dairy farmers give up .

What is next?

There are hardly any growth potential in Germany, the hopes of the Export set. The global demand for milk and cheese is forecast to rise steadily. But for years the rate of Europe have committed, while the USA, New Zealand and Australia widened the production, explains the Farmers’ Association. “If the EU does not play here, it will be displaced at the end of the global markets.”

The Federal Association of German dairy farmers, however, warns against a higher dependence on the world market. Since only relatively small quantities are traded globally, the price fluctuations are likely to be violent in the future – “with long valleys and short spikes”.

Greece: Tsipras government reform shows list – SPIEGEL ONLINE

Little time? At the end of the text’s a summary.

In the Finance Ministries of the euro States outweighs the frustration on Monday. “Again, there were few concrete,” says a representative of a Member State to reform the list that Greek officials over the weekend spent hours negotiating with colleagues from the ministries of finance other euro countries. “The progress is incredibly slow.” Now the Greek Ministry of Finance has a part of the list made public, it negotiated in Brussels. It is obviously an attempt to counter the accusation, you hardly make concrete offers. Nearly 4.8 billion euros hopes the government of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras from the privatization proceeds as indicated, and new taxes.

This is not according to insiders from the environment of the Greek government, however, to the full list. The property tax approximately by which the Greek government occupies a comparatively large amount of money, is not mentioned.

The currently known suggestions of the Greek Government as follows:

  • 1.5 billion euros wants Greece by privatization are taking 700 million less than originally planned. Moves Athens at the port of Piraeus. This will now be sold mostly to Chinese investors. The Frankfurt airport operator Fraport will take over 14 regional airports. The government also plans to sell a government-race betting company.
  • Nearly two billion euros is Athens looks to the fight against tax fraud and the driving in unpaid taxes . EUR 725 million the state wants to take over the tax amnesty for hidden assets abroad, 600 million euros to bring the already valid law allowing installment payments of tax due. 350 million to bring the fight against VAT fraud, EUR 250 million is expected from the curb rampant gasoline and cigarette smuggling.
  • The future tax revenues intended to nearly 800 million euros increased by the tax collector to be better equipped. This should bring 225 million euros. 270 million euros is hoped that as a result of a receipt lottery: You should bring Greeks to reclaim VAT receipts from dealers. Other, not further described tax law changes should bring 300 million euros.
  • For licenses for online bookmakers of the Greek government wants 200 million euros additionally taking. Additional licenses for private TV stations to flush even 350 million euros in the state treasury.

These proposals are not executed. This also lack details about the assumptions on which they are based. After all indicates the Athenian Treasury that it expects only 1.4 percent growth this year. Previous calculations were still pending from the double value.

In addition to the revenue the government wants Tsipras but also increase spending – and adopt social programs, the abolition of the donors had already agreed with the previous Conservative government. The reintroduction of the 13th month pension for ex-officials below the poverty line, they estimated at 600 million euros . A more social power for poor households would more 82 million euros cost.

“The overall framework must be right,” said Merkel

In principle, they do it: At the EU summit just over a week ago had a round to German Chancellor Angela Merkel (CDU) Tsipras conceded to replace action from the old aid package and additional money, such as for social spending – as long as they would be sufficient to finance. Finally had to “the overall framework right,” Merkel reiterated on Monday.

In any case, the new proposals delay the possible release of further aid money, because the representatives of donors must reckon with entirely new. Whether the proposals but actually bring the estimated revenue, examine the officials in Brussels and Athens now in the next few days. That being said, some diplomats also disrupt the fact that the Greek government wants to tap into additional money above all sources but makes no proposals for deeper structural reforms.

The accusation not to take long-term measures, Greece tries to counter with some announcements. So promises the government to limit early retirement and to guarantee the independence of the statistical office. More comprehensive proposals to redevelop the rigid labor market or the heavy losses pension system, but missing.

Easy Money does not bring in the Greek banks bad loans can also outsource the proposal a “bad bank”. Thus, the government wants to appear to regain access to the 10.9 billion euro, which has its bank rescue fund HFSF referred back to the European rescue fund EFSF in February. For this purpose, including Germany, an Act of Parliament would be in several euro countries needed.

Given these hurdles working in Athens, according to “Iefimerida” already working on a Plan B: If the suggestions in Brussels continues to be well received, to write to the Treasury already on a second list

. In summary: The Athens government released the list of reform proposals, on which it is negotiating with donors. It contains in bullet point form, especially measures to adopt higher taxes. Structural reforms and spending cuts appear practically non-existent.
