After further reflection, the CEO decides to nevertheless request a meeting with a Coface analyst, who convinces him emphatically of imminent and serious difficulties with the prospect. In the end, the company decides to sell less, but against advance payment.
The retailer’s group is filing for insolvency in the next months, whilst the company based on Coface’s know-how has avoided a high bad debt.
