Siemens and insolvency administrator for BenQ Mobile reach agreement

München, (PresseBox) - Siemens and the BenQ Mobile GmbH & Co. OHG Insolvency Administrator, Martin Prager, have reached a settlement after constructive discussions that began in 2006. In the settlement agreement, Siemens agreed to a gross payment of 300 million Euro, which is expected to result in a net payment of approximately EUR 255 million after taking into account Siemens' creditor claims.
