Adevarul Holding’s creditors met for the first General Assembly, with around 20 people present at the meeting organized at Rin Central Hotel Bucharest. During the meeting, the Creditors’ Committee was elected and it includes representatives from BCR, Elida Media and Red Media Digital SRL. After electing the 3 members, the vote stopped, although, according to Paginademedia.ro’s info, Pro TV SA also wanted to be part of the committee. Elida Media was elected president of Creditors Commitee.
Some of the creditors present at the Assembly said that Elida Media and Red Media Digital are controlled by Adevarul Holding, as Elida Media is owned by Razvan Enache – an old collaborator of Cristi Burci, the new Adevarul Holding owner.
The judicial administrator Servicii de Reorganizare şi Lichidare IPURL (Reorganization and Liquidation Services IPURL) will have a salary of Euro 10,000, no VAT. A success fee of Euro 300,000 no VAT was established, if a reorganizing plan gets approved.
