mybet Holding SE: Hearing date in Westlotto proceedings postponed to 12 July 2017

Berlin, 3 March 2017. The Higher Regional Court of Düsseldorf (OLG) has postponed the next hearing date in the proceedings SWS Service GmbH (SWS) versus Westdeutsche Lotterie GmbH & Co. OHG (Westlotto). Originally, the date for the oral proceedings had been set to 8 March 2017. The OLG has fixed the new hearing date at 12 July 2017. The date has been postponed due to an application by the defendant's representative.

The so called Westlotto proceedings had been referred back to the Higher Regional Court Düsseldorf by the Cartel Panel of the German Federal Supreme Court in an appeal proceedings in mid of July 2016. The proceedings are about possible damage claims of SWS, a subsidiary of mybet Holding SE, because of a cartel infringement by Westlotto. The German Federal Supreme Court had confirmed the cartel infringement by Westlotto, but instructed the OLG to review the fixed indemnity payment. The original judgement by the OLG Düsseldorf had awarded an indemnity payment of 11.5 million Euro plus interest to SWS in April 2014.
