Attel Finance S.A., a public limited company governed by Luxembourg law, domiciled for the purpose of this auction at Schweiger Advokatur & Notariat, Dammstrasse 19, 6300 Zug, Switzerland (the “Company”) is a judgment creditor of Mr. Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio, in respect of a substantial loan made by the Company’s subsidiary, Attel & Cie. SA.

The court judgment against Manfredi Lefebvre d’Ovidio was awarded by the Rome Supreme Court of Cassation (nr. 24855/2006 Attachment 1) and is internationally enforceable. The courts found against him at every stage of the proceedings (Att. 2).

The Company intends to sell such enforcement rights by way of public auction to take place online on the 24 May 2022. All offers shall be received by Schweiger Advokatur & Notariat, Dammstrasse 19, 6300 Zug, Switzerland at or before 11.30 AM CET by way of electronic communication addressed to:

Following the auction’s conclusion, Schweiger Notariat will contact bidders to confirm the outcome.

Mr. Lefebvre d’Ovidio, despite having signed personal promissory notes for the full amount owed (Att. 3) and the above-mentioned Supreme Court’s judgement, has so far failed to pay the entirety of his debt to the Company. We and our predecessors in title were able to seize € 712,106.36 of his personal assets. We are now pursuing him internationally for the balance of the judgment debt which, as of the 31 March 2022, amounted to € 4,594,798.46 including interest and costs since the judgment date.

On our application, the Tribunal of Monaco has issued a freezing order (Att. 4) at 4 banks in Monte Carlo, Monaco where Lefebvre d’Ovidio resides. Simultaneously we have started separate legal actions in various other jurisdictions (including Luxembourg, Switzerland, the UK, the US, and Italy – Att. 5 & 6), under both civil and criminal procedures, seeking the same result.

Against the background summarized above, a possible interest in assigning the Company’s credit rights before the auction date would be considered. Your email to the above-mentioned address would be most appreciated.
