Only creditors whose claims arose prior to the application for company reorganisation may participate in composition proceedings.
A creditor whose claim may be satisfied through set-off or whose claim is subject to rights of priority may not participate in the proceedings. If a creditor has a subordinated claim, he is not allowed to participate in the composition proceedings, unless the other creditors who are participating in the proceedings should consent to this.
If a creditor waives its rights of set-off or priority, in whole or in part, the creditor may participate in the proceedings to a corresponding extent. It should be noted that a creditor may participate in the proceedings, even if his claim is not due and payable or is tied to certain conditions in order to be payable.
