The German solar company filed for bankruptcy late this March. At the same time, it applied for self-administration. However, following the failure of the Odersun board to successfully find a new investor for the company, the local court in Berlin-Charlottenburg appointed Rüdiger Wienberg from hww Wienberg Wilhelm, provisional liquidator today, April 18.
Despite the setback, Wienberg is said to be cautiously optimistic. "Even without self-administration, it remains the goal to save as much of the company as possible by selling it to investors," he commented.
The salaries of the around 260 employees will be covered by insolvency payments until the end of this May. Until then, there is still time to save Odersun, said Wienberg.
