All payments to investors of Grupeer are currently suspended
In the light of the current worldwide health crises due to spread of COVID-19 virus reaching proportions of a pandemic, Grupeer is hereby informing you about the upcoming changes in the company’s operations and payments to you, our investors.
We have received your inquiries and we understand that you have questions regarding your investments and protection thereof. The team of Grupeer has been working with legal experts on finding solutions acceptable to all parties involved.
Regretfully, we are forced to inform you that in the current circumstances it is not possible for us to continue operations as before with an objective cause out of our control. Therefore, we hereby notify you that all payments to investors of Grupeer are currently suspended due to emergency state declared in European Union and worldwide regarding COVID-19 pandemic crises.
The following are only a few of the circumstances prompting us to make this decision.
Due to worldwide national limitations on any debt recovery procedures as well as remedies applied to borrowers, providing them with extended and postponed terms for payment obligations, the cash flow in the investment transactions has been automatically suspended. Furthermore, closing of national borders and limiting physical movement of people has caused drastic decrease of demand for goods and services of the borrower-companies, resulting in termination of agreements and forcing many borrowers to suspend or cease economic activity. Therefore, neither borrowers nor Grupeer are able to fulfill obligations towards you, our investors.
According to national regulations in most countries worldwide, possibilities of debt recovery are strictly limited, including prohibition to initiate debtors’ insolvency proceedings and suspension of court proceedings.
Grupeer is also forced to reduce our staff due to the general economic situation and the requirements of quarantine and self-isolation. For this reason, our reaction-time to your inquiries is extended.
The decision to suspend payments while temporary is also currently indefinite as it is not possible for us and the rest of the world to evaluate the consequences of this crises will leave on the investment market. Therefore, we are not able to offer you any timeline regarding the execution of the loans you have invested in. However, Grupeer will put its best effort to prepare and offer you such solutions as payment plans and other alternatives.
We are requesting you to keep calm, be patient and understanding, restraining from any individual rushed activities that could prevent us from finding and offering the best solution on managing your investments in these alarming times.
Please stay safe and prioritize your health.
