We were already mandated to locate a strategic investor before AlfaCelik fell into financial distress and had gone under bankruptcy protection. Due to our role at that time, financial restructuring of Alfa Sinai Yatirim (AlfaCelik) has been successfully completed by means of the investment from Zeman International (Zeman) based in Austria . As a part of restructuring process, Zeman has paid all the debt of AlfaCelik at a discount to existing creditors and AlfaCelik reached a healthy financial structure. Established in 1999, AlfaCelik put design, production and erection groups together as a whole and builds steel structures with EPC capabilities. Since its foundation to the date of transaction, the Company had successfully completed over 150 constructional steelwork projects.
