This process is parallel to the pre-bankruptcy of creditors that the board of directors of Abenewco 1, Abengoa's operating subsidiary, has requested for 27 companies, including Abenewco 1 itself, after its rescue request of 249 million euros was rejected by the Fund of Support to the Solvency of Strategic Companies managed by the State Company of Industrial Participations (Sepi).
