Wiesmann Comes Out Of Bankruptcy
All this bankruptcy talk has left a bitter taste in our mouths. Fortunately, one of the companies that filed insolvency proceedings earlier this year has managed to get itself back in order.
Wiesmann took the step of filing bankruptcy back in August. Anytime something like this happens, the first thought immediately goes to the future of the company, or whatever future it has left.
But after a few months of being relatively quiet, Wiesmann has announced that it has filed an application to dismiss its bankruptcy filing, putting an end to what would’ve been a pretty sad end to the German specialty marque.
The company’s management has scheduled a meeting with creditors on December 16 to talk about the company’s future, something we hope is a lot brighter now than it was back in August.
Hopefully, more news of this sort comes out of all those other troubled brands. At least Wiesmann was able to get its act together; here’s to all the others following suit.
