Koerber Group Risks and Challenges
Koerber is struggling in a very challenging market environment. The decreasing revenue has forced Koerber to secure a loan for its future development and operations. In November 2020, Koerber successfully placed a Schuldschein loan on the capital market and raised 460 million USD from investors. The initially announced volume of 230 million USD with maturities of four to ten years was significantly oversubscribed by Korber AG decision to double the final volume to 460 million USD. The transaction has been arranged by Helaba and DZ Bank.
Körber AG is getting used to expand its footprint with acquisition. However, putting it all together and making it work as a whole is a challenge.
