The group (CAIRE) which operates the two companies Air Antilles and Air Guyane, was placed in compulsory liquidation at the beginning of August.
The Pointe-à-Pitre commercial court examined on Thursday three takeover offers from the Caire group, owner of the airlines Air Antilles and Air Guyane, which was placed in compulsory liquidation on August 2.
Two takeover offers
At the end of the hearing, two takeover offers from the group were accepted by the Pointe-à-Pitre commercial court. These offers are that from the Cafom group, a furniture specialist (of which a shareholder is common to the group, proposing a takeover, with 194 of the 296 employees; and that of Cipim (holding of the Edeis group, manager of 16 airports) and of the community of Saint-Martin, covering only the Antilles zone, with 120 of the 218 employees in this area.
A third offer rejected
The third offer, from Guyane Fly, offered the takeover of the Guyanese perimeter, over which the airline Air Guyane holds a public service delegation, fundamental for serving very isolated areas. However, she was automatically dismissed, according to Ilan Muntlak, lawyer for the Social and Economic Committee (CSE) of the Cairo group.
“The prosecutor refused to request its admissibility and that it be transmitted to the court,” explained the lawyer, according to whom Edeis’ offer was supported by the administrators, the liquidator, the CSE and the prosecutor of the Republic.
