Wednesday January 31st, 2018

Luxembourg, Prague, 31st January 2018 – APS Holding S.A. (APS) has completed an intragroup restructuring process, effective as of 1 January 2018. The parent company APS Holding S.A. remains seated in Luxembourg, Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, and controlled by its CEO and sole shareholder Martin Machoň. The debt recovery platform APS Recovery a.s. remains seated in Prague, Czech Republic.

CEO and co-founder Martin Machoň comments:Over the past two years, APS significantly strengthened its role as an alternative asset manager focusing on distressed debt and real estate recovery and investments. The overall nominal value of assets under management exceeds €5.5 billion, and more than 800 employees cover 12 countries in Europe and Vietnam. Our teams have closed and are successfully servicing the most significant NPL transactions in Cyprus, Croatia, Hungary, and Romania. In 2017, APS became the most successful NPL investor and servicer in Central and South-eastern Europe. Our new corporate structure guarantees the best opportunities for our employees, clients, business partners, and investors. The new company structure allows us to expand in new markets and invest into the largest NPL portfolios in Europe. In addition to our growth in Europe, APS Group has found success in Vietnam for more than two years and is looking to expand further in this region by entering another country during 2018.
