Glitnir's Current Business Plan

Glitnir hereby presents a summary of Glitnir's Current Business plan (BP) which is based on an opening position of 31 December 2013. The cash flow and the cash balance at the end of each year are presented in three categories; 1) ISK, 2) FX from domestic counterparties, and 3) FX from foreign counterparties.
Please also note however that the cashflows exclude the monetisation of Íslandsbanki, which is too uncertain to make reliable assumptions on regarding quantum, timing and currency. Glitnir would also like to draw attention to the other important accompanying notes and risk factors set out in the presentation.

Correction of a news report on THM

The Winding-up Board of Glitnir wants to make it clear, because of the inaccuracy of a news report by Morgunbladid, on Thursday 9 January 2013,  that no plans have been made to “hire a new financial advisor instead of the UK  firm Talbot Hughes & McKillop…”

THM is the Financial Advisor (FA) on behalf of all the creditors in Glitnir engaged by the Informal Creditors’ Committee (ICC). No indication has been received from creditors that THM does not enjoy their support  and accordingly  THM will continue in its current role going forward.

Furthermore, there is reason to emphasize, because of statements to the contrary in the newspaper, that Glitnir has twice presented the Central Bank of Iceland with detailed proposals concerning settlement of the estate, including a request for exemption from the law on capital controls. The proposal presented on 18 November 2013 was designed, as quoted on Glitnir’s homepage, “to fulfil the financial conditions in Icelandic law which stipulate that monetary and exchange rate stability should not be jeopardized, as outlined by the Central Bank in its letter of 23 September 2013”. 

A response to the latest proposal is still awaited.   Á íslensku

Analysis of trading activity in Glitnir hf. claims

The Winding up Board of Glitnir hf. („Glitnir“) has commissioned an analysis of trading activity in Glitnir claims since the default in October 2008 (the „Default“) to September 2013 from the financial advisory firm Moelis & Company („Moelis“).

According to the analysis, whilst the market in buying and selling („transferring“) Glitnir claims has been very active, pre-Default creditors who have not subsequently sold their claims still hold 29% of Glitnir‘s claims by value (by number, 93% of Glitnir´s creditors).  Á íslensku
