Judge denies financing motions in Wolfgang bankruptcy caseBrent Burkey
A hearing is scheduled for Sept. 27 on the fate of a sales agreement for assets of York County-based Wolfgang Candy Co. Inc. after a bankruptcy judge denied two motions by the debtor Tuesday, the attorney representing Wolfgang said.
The motions were for court permission to use Wolfgang assets for financing, said Larry Young, attorney with York-based CGA Law Firm.
The judge denied the motions because the plan would not have been able to cover, up front, the full $885,000 purchase price agreed to in the sales agreement and debt holder M&T Bank did not consent under the terms, Young said.
Negotiations continue toward finding an agreeable way for buyer Divine Serendipity LLC to close the deal, he said. Meanwhile, the business is still open, operating and taking orders, Young said. Company officials are hopeful the sale will still happen, he added.
North York-based confectioner Wolfgang filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in March, and a judge approved the plan in August for a sale of company assets and a lease agreement for Wolfgang real property.
