|| Changes in Hyperion's Management|
Last summer, distribution of Hyperion's shares drastically changed when the company issued a capital increase: New shares were issued to pay debts of nearly 400000 Euros owed to Ben Hermans - allegedly for the latter's work as the company lawyer. As a result of this, the other shareholders - in additon to Timothy de Groote, who is mentioned in public documentation, Trevor Dickinson, Costel Mincea and the Frieden Brothers are said to own shares - now collectively own less then three percent of the company.
Shortly after that, Costel Mincea handed over (German) his AmigaOS 4 centric forum os4welt.de to a third party and resigned from his post as a director ("besturder") of Hyperion. The latter was not communicated publicly by either Mincea or Hyperion at the time, but with quite a bit of a delay the change in management is now recorded in Belgium's official company register (KBO, Kruispuntbank van Ondernemingen): Only Timothy de Groote is listed as a "Besturder" for Hyperion now, the request to have Costel Mincea removed as a director (PDF, Dutch) is available as well.
de Groote himself had increased his number of shares during the 2019 capital increase - albeit only by a very tiny amount, compared to Hermans' mass of additional shares. Now the author of the Amiga documents report claims on Twitter that Ben Hermans sued de Groote last November, a claim that is confirmed to amiga-news.de by a second source.
The results of this legal battle are currently unknown. There are unconfirmed rumours that Timothy de Groote, who was still representing Hyperion at the Amiga 34 last October, resigned from his post as a director in the meantime and is only listed in that position until a replacement is found. So far we were unable to either verify or dispel these rumours. (cg)
