Lehman Brothers Treasury Co. B.V. (“LBT”) was declared bankrupt (in staat van faillissement verklaard) by the Amsterdam District Court on 8 October 2008 with the appointment of Rutger Schimmelpenninck and on 13 October 2009 Frédéric Verhoeven as bankruptcy trustees (curatoren) (the “Bankruptcy Trustees”). On 10 December 2012, LBT offered a Composition Plan to its creditors. The Amsterdam District Court has confirmed (gehomologeerd) the Composition Plan on 22 March 2013. The decision has been published on the LBT Website and on www.rechtspraak.nl.
The ultimate date for appealing the decision of the District Court was 2 April 2013. According to the administration of the Amsterdam Court of Appeal, until 3 April 2013 no appeal against the District Court’s confirmation decision has been lodged. The absence of appeal means the Composition Plan became effective as of 3 April 2013. As of 3 April 2013, the Bankruptcy Trustees have been appointed as liquidators of LBT (the “Liquidators”)*.
* As of 1 January 2024, Rutger Schimmelpenninck has stepped down as liquidator of LBT. Karien van Boekel has been appointed as liquidator of LBT. Therefore, as from 1 January 2024 onwards, the definition of Liquidators stands for Frédéric Verhoeven and Karien van Boekel.
In 2019, LBT concluded a Partial Wind-Down of the estate, which included a solicitation process with its creditors, the sale of a portion of LBT’s intercompany claim against LBHI, and a final distribution to certain of its creditors funded in large part by the proceeds of this sale transaction. The objectives of the Partial Wind-Down were simplification of the LBT estate, reduction of operating costs and preparation of the LBT estate for a final wind-down.
