Initial situation

Calyxo GmbH, based in Bitterfeld-Wolfen, was a leading German manufacturer of innovative CdTe thin-film solar modules. The company experienced payment difficulties due to the loss of a major order. Former technology partner Solar Fields had taken over ownership of Calyxo GmbH from the former Q-Cells SE in February 2011 and was no longer willing to make up for the losses. The provisional insolvency administrator Prof. Dr. Lucas Flöther commissioned Restrukturierungspartner to conduct a structured bidding process in order to find a suitable investor for the business.
