See Friends of historical securities, "Founded in 1866, AG since 1881. The company never really flourished: a new mill built around the turn of the century only ran smoothly after two years. In 1910, the largest customer stopped paying. Most of a loan issued in 1913 could not be placed, which forced the mill property to be sold. Only a (guaranteed) liquidation distribution of 10% remained for the shareholders. Stock exchange listing Hamburg."
