Topic Measures Electrawinds SE: BaFin threatens coercive fines

Date: 07.07.2017, updated on 16.08.2017

On 29 June 2017 BaFin ordered Electrawinds SE to comply with the financial reporting requirements pursuant to sections 37v et seq. of the Securities Trading Act (Wertpapierhandelsgesetz – WpHG) and threatened coercive fines in the amount of EUR 230,000.

Electrawinds SE offended against the financial reporting requirements pursuant to sections 37v (1) sentences 1, 2, 3 and 4 in conjunction with section 37y number 1 of the WpHG. The legal basis for the order and the threat of coercive fines are section 4 (2) sentence 1 of the WpHG in conjunction with section 17 sentence 1 of the Act Establishing the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority (Finanzdienstleistungsaufsichtsgesetz - FinDAG) and with sections 6 (1), 7 (1), 11 (1), 13 of the Act on Administrative Enforcement (Verwaltungsvollstreckungsgesetz - VwVG). This notice is published pursuant to section 40c of the WpHG.

The order is enforceable but not yet final and conclusive.

Update (16.08.2017):

The order has been legally binding since 8 August 2017.
