JoWooD Insolvent

It is a pretty commonly-known fact that JoWood has been edging towards financial difficulties and needed Arcania: Gothic 4 to be a smash hit. Apparently, it wasn't, and the Gothic publisher has filed for financial insolvency.
Vienna, Austria, 7 January 2011; The management board of JoWooD Entertainment AG announces that all efforts towards restructuring of capitalization concerning outside capital as well as equity capital had to be considered as failed on 06/01/2011. On the basis of this fact, material insolvency occurred with this date.

Therefore today, JoWooD Entertainment AG applied for a procedure of capita lreorganization at the Commercial Court Vienna in accordance with Art. 167 IO/ Insolvency Statute.

Bond creditors of the 10% bond 2007-2011 (ISIN: AT0000A05TV0) are asked to report directly to the company (see queries reference) to be able to coordinate their rights.

The management board assumes that negotiations with creditors and possible investors can be positively conducted and finalized within 90 days and thus continuation of the company can be assured.
This presumably means the cancellation of Arcania: Gothic 4 - Fall of Setarrif.

As a huge Gothic fan, this is kind of a shame to see happen, but my Gothic interest has turned to Risen anyway, and I wasn't expecting much from the franchise under its new management.

Thanks Blue's News.
