Conversations with creditors
Elektrobudowa is in the process of negotiating with its creditors with a view to concluding agreements with all subcontractors and suppliers. The key element of this process is to determine the methods and deadlines for the payment of liabilities in the shortest possible period of time.
At the same time, the company is conducting financial restructuring activities aimed at increasing financial liquidity, ensuring proper performance of contracts and gradual normalization of settlements with suppliers and subcontractors. This is to lead to the fastest possible payment of receivables and ensure the appropriate portfolio of orders and sources of financing.
