Court reverses injunction imposed on Grammer

-Regional Court of Nuremberg-Fürth dismisses injunction petitioned by the Prevent Group
-Placement of mandatory convertible bond issue to strategic partner was lawful
-Further confirmation of legal opinion held by Grammer


Amberg, May 19, 2017 – In a ruling handed down today by the Regional Court of Nuremberg-Fürth, the injunction imposed on Amberg-based automotive supplier Grammer was reversed. The automotive component supplier Prevent, part of the Hastor Group, had made an attempt to prevent the issue of shares by Grammer to a strategic partner. The reversal has retrospective effect. This means that it has been adjudicated on a final and binding basis that the shares were duly issued in legally effective form.


A further legal victory by Grammer
After the Regional Court of Nuremberg had already dismissed all petitions filed by the Hastor side on Monday, this ruling also backs Grammer in its battle against the investor.  Accordingly, all courts have meanwhile confirmed Grammer’s assessment of all legal issues in the course of this dispute, without exception.
