Detection: Harboe sold the villa to the ølkongens daughter

the Skeletons continue to fall out of the closet for the country's third largest brewery, Harboe in Skælskør.

Extra Magazine revealed earlier in the year, Harboe in a number of cases have traded properties with the long-standing director Bernd Griese and his family while he is well to the brand even was the top leader in the brewery.

the 78-year-old Bernd Griese was in the context of criticism to gratify themselves at the expense of the shareholders. But Harboe insured, that was not entered into other transactions with Grieses family and acquaintances.

Now it turns out, however, that it is not correct.

In 2004, wrote Bernd Griese namely, even under a purchase contract, where his daughter Vibeke Harboe Malling and son-in-law, Søren Malling, bought a house of Harboe for 3.1 million Danish kroner. It displays the information in the land register.

- I would strongly recommend that you, as a director of a listed company keeps itself far from the kind of. And if you finally do it, then you have the evidence that the property is not sold too cheaply. Otherwise, the ends of the shareholders as the losers, " says Lars Frederiksen, president of the Committee for good corporate governance.

He adds that many of the 'family transactions' in Harboe's something he never ever has seen in the past.

Bernd Griese, who in the autumn of 2019 changed from director to president in Harboe, is not returned in the Additional Blade's inquiries about the case.

It is therefore to be seen whether he has done anything to ensure that the price of the house was fair for the brewery and its shareholders.

Vibeke Harboe Malling is not the only one by Bernd Grieses daughters, who have bought a house of Harboe. A second daughter, Pernille Harboe Obling, was in 2009, the neighbor to her sister, when she bought this white house in Skælskør for 3.15 million of the brewery. Photo: Tariq Mikkel Khan

Previously also Harboe's long-standing president and ceo Ruth Schade - which several sources described as Bernd Grieses 'right hand' - bought a house of the brewery.

The same has her nephew, Martin Schade, who today sits in the executive board together with Søren Malling.

Nor do they act arouses the enthusiasm of Lars Frederiksen, chairman of the Committee for good corporate governance, which sets out guidelines for the country's listed companies.

- It is a bad custom, and the sort of people therefore stay away from it. The trades are something that Harboe's shareholders should ask questions at a general meeting, he says.

Bernd Griese is not returned in the Additional Magazine's questions about the Harboe sale of houses to Ruth and Martin Schade.

Bernd Griese and his three daughters, owns 16 percent of the shares in Harboes bryggeri, while the remaining 84 percent is owned by other shareholders.

the Family's shares are however so-called A-shares.

It means that the daughters - Karina Harboe Laursen, Vibeke Harboe Malling and Pernille Obling Griese - just over 50 percent of the votes in the company.

Thus determines the sovereign of the brewery.

because of the silence of the protagonist, it is not clear why Harboe has not previously desired to inform the above-mentioned real estate transactions.

However, neither Bernd Grieses or the brewery's handling of the matter impresses Per Hansen, investeringsøkonom at Nordnet.

- It is not pretty. It provides at least a presumption that the man might not be interested in to tell, what trades happened and on what conditions, he says.
