Capital Service, a lending company in Poland, has entered a creditor protection framework under the “Covid Shield Legislation 4.0”. You can see the official legislation act here (in Polish only). “Covid Shield Legislation 4.0” is a recently introduced project by the Sejm, the bicameral parliament of Poland.
In accordance with the “Covid Shield Legislation 4.0”, Capital Service has received approval from the Polish authorities to defer the borrowers’ repayment transfers to investors on Mintos while continuing its business operation. Capital Service has now stopped all such transfers.
The company is now obliged to present a repayment plan to investors on Mintos with information on when it plans to resume the borrowers’ repayments transfers. Capital Service must present the plan within four months.
Mintos has discussed with Capital Service for them to share the proposed repayment plan for investors on Mintos sooner – in the next 3 weeks. After seeing the proposed repayment plan and deciding if that is in the best interest of Mintos investors, we will share information on the next steps. As an alternative strategy, Mintos is considering legal action in Latvia against Capital Service, since agreements between Capital Service and Mintos, as well as respective assignment agreements with investors on Mintos, are governed by Latvian law.
