mybet Holding SE: Hearing date in Westlotto proceedings postponed to 8 March 2017

Berlin, 2 December 2016. The Higher Regional Court of Düsseldorf has postponed the next hearing date in the proceedings SWS Service GmbH against Westdeutsche Lotterie GmbH & Co. OHG. Originally the date had been set to 25 January 2017. Now the Higher Regional Court re-scheduled the hearing date to 8 March 2017. The date had to be changed due to internal reasons within the court.

In the middle of July 2016 these so called Westlotto proceedings had been referred back to the Higher Regional Court of Düsseldorf for retrial after a revision by the Cartel Panel of the German Federal Supreme Court. Subject to the proceedings are potential damage claims of SWS, a subsidiary of mybet Holding SE, due to a cartel infringement by Westlotto. The German Federal Supreme Court had confirmed the fact of a cartel infringement, but instructed the Higher Regional Court to review the indemnity payment set. The original decision by the Higher Regional Court of Düsseldorf in April 2014 had awarded to SWS damage claims with a volume of EUR 11.5 million plus interest.
