BERLIN – As it fights to ward off insolvency, Escada has for the third time improved its exchange offer for bondholders as well as extending the exchange period.

The bond exchange, a key element of the German fashion house’s restructuring program, is now set to expire Aug. 11 rather than Aug. 5.

The offer requires a minimum acceptance quota of 80 percent. In mid-July, the company said a quota of 37 percent had been reached.
