(Adds revised 2017 financial statements)
ATHENS, July 16 (Reuters) - Jewellery maker Folli Follie has launched a revised proposal to secure consent from its creditors on its restructuring and secure its viability, the troubled Greek company said on Tuesday.
The step is key for the firm, which has debt of about 430 million euros ($483.97 million) due this year and in 2021, to avoid collapse.
Along with its luxury jewellery trademark, Folli distributes international apparel brands in Greece, including Nike and Calvin Klein. It employs 5,000 people in its home market and abroad, including in China and Japan.
A hedge fund report last year suggesting the company misrepresented sales sent Folli's shares into a tailspin, prompted a legal investigation, fines from the Greek securities watchdog and the resignation of the company's founders.
Folli, which has been working for months to revise its 2017 financial statements, has been in lengthy talks with its creditors to restructure its debt and operations.
It said on Tuesday that a previous agreement with a group of unsecured creditors in February has failed and that the company has worked on an alternative restructuring proposal with its advisers.
Folli needs the approval of the majority of its creditors before applying to a Greek court to start its rehabilitation plan, it said.
Court ratification of the plan is expected by June 2020, it added.
Folli also said on Tuesday it has revised its 2017 financial statements, which showed a "positive" net asset value.
"The consolidated financial statements of 2017 set the basis for the company's future steps", so that it continues its worldwide commercial activities and enhances its corporate governance, it said.
