Flughafen Wien AG cancels leases with Sardana Group companies

 

As a consequence of significant payment arrears,  the failure to fully stock  individual shops

and unfinished  facilities in the new  terminal Check-in 3, Flughafen Wien AG has cancelled

the leases with Artifacts, Saveria  and Striberny  in Check-in 3  after long and unfortunately

unsuccessful negotiations. 

 

Flughafen Wien AG  has filed  various  legal proceedings against the above-mentioned

companies to enforce its claims. Legal actions for eviction have also been started.

 

Since the current legal proceedings  have  not  brought the expected  payments, Flughafen

Wien AG has also filed an application with the provincial court in Korneuburg for the opening

of bankruptcy proceedings against the above-mentioned companies. 

 

Two of the facilities in  Check-in 3, which have not yet been transferred, will be re-let

immediately. A new tender for the remaining space will start as soon as the necessary court

decisions have been issued.

 

Flughafen Wien AG  regrets this development, but the amount of the outstanding payments

and the length of the overdue periods as well as  the failure to complete the shops will not

permit any further extensions. The loss in revenues resulting from these delays has already

been reflected in a provision, which was recorded by  Flughafen Wien AG  during  the first

quarter of 2012. Therefore, the earnings guidance issued in May remains intact.
