GÖRG partner Sascha Feies appointed provisional insolvency administrator of PTScientists

Berlin, 09.07.2019

PTScientists GmbH, a Berlin-based New Space start-up, filed for preliminary insolvency proceedings pursuant to the German Insolvency Code (Insolvenzordnung) at the Berlin Charlottenburg Local Court on Friday, July 5, 2019. The background to this is that unplanned delays had occurred in the acquisition of further investor and promotion funds for the planned lunar mission. The resulting liquidity shortage made the application legally necessary.

The attorney Sascha Feies of the Kanzlei GÖRG has appointed as the provisional insolvency manager. Over the next few days, the experienced insolvency expert will review documents and talk to the company’s managers to find out about financing and subsidy options, and thus continuation options, for the space company and its approximately 60 employees, including a large number of highly qualified engineers and scientists. The business operations and research projects of the scientific enterprise continue without restrictions, even in the context of the insolvency.
