Folli reaches preliminary restructuring deal with some creditors

Greek jeweller Folli Follie has reached a preliminary deal with some of its creditors over a rescue plan for the company, it said late on Tuesday.

Folli has struggled to pay suppliers and workers and keep its business going since a hedge fund report in May last year questioned its accounting. Its shares have since been suspended, and the company has been fined by Greece's securities watchdog.

The firm published delayed audited financial statements for 2017 in July that showed it had overstated annual revenue by more than 1 billion euros (£859 million). It also presented an alternative scheme to bondholders after a previous proposal collapsed.

Folli has outstanding debt of about 430 million euros ($473.95 million) due this year and in 2021, and needs the consent of at least 60% of creditors on the rescue plan before it can file it with Greek courts.

The company has been in talks with bondholders for months and late on Tuesday said it has agreed "in principle" on the terms of its financial restructuring with a group of unsecured creditors.

Folli has also been in "regular discussions" with creditors holding about 34% of 130 million euros in Swiss notes due in 2021, it said, who together with the group of unsecured creditors represented about 41.2% of its overall debt.

Founders Dimitris Koutsolioutsos and his wife, Ekaterini, resigned as chairman and vice chairperson, respectively. Koutsolioutsos owns a 35% stake in Folli, while China's Fosun holds 16.4%, according to Refinitiv Eikon data.

The restructuring plan includes shutting down loss-making stores and transferring core business assets to a new company that will be wholly owned by Folli.

Non-core and real estate assets with an estimated market value of about 90 million euros will pass to creditors.

Folli has said the plan will be much more beneficial to creditors than an orderly wind-down or bankruptcy, where it could take five to seven years for creditors to recover their capital.
