Based on its restructuring plan, Váhostav-SK will pay non secured creditors 18.75 percent of the value of their claims, which equals €19.62 million. Overall, the company will pay €43.9 million of the claims within five years. Váhostav-SK will have paid 50 percent of the original claims within five years, while the other 50 percent will be dealt with in the form of creditors’ right of ownership to Váhostav-SK shares and equity.
