On the 1st of May, the foundation meeting of the initiative Zukunft in Brand was held in the inn "Zur Gruenen Linde" in Briesen. Nine foundation members from all over Germany came together to convert the loose joining of some shareholders into a registered society with legal capacity. This enables us to hire a lawyer to examine inconsistencies in the running CargoLifter AG insolvency proceedings.
Excerpts from the society's statutes Preamble
Up to 72,000 mostly private shareholders and convertible bond subscribers together have invested since 1996 to make progress with and profit from the Lighter-than-Air-Technology for heavy load airborne transport within the framework of CargoLifter AG. The invested assets are threatened to be withdrawn from the shareholders and convertible bond subscribers by an insolvency proceeding, though the chances of this technology can now as before be considered promising. The members of the initiative Zukunft in Brand have joined to avert this detriment of property for the shareholders and convertible bond subscribers and also to make sure that they participate in future profits from the invested capital.
