StaRUG: What entrepreneurs should know now

The German Corporate Stabilization and Restructuring Act, or StaRUG for short, has been in force since the beginning of the year. It enables companies that are not yet insolvent or heavily indebted, but threatened with insolvency, to carry out pre-insolvency restructuring as part of an independently managed process. For many companies, this could well be an increased chance of sustainable and value-retaining restructuring.

Out of the Crisis with an Improved Cost Position

When a recession of almost historic proportions hit many industries following the financial crisis over 12 years ago, most companies were utterly unprepared. The same happened again to many companies last year.

What is important in that context?

Final Whistle: How Soccer Clubs Must Now Reposition Themselves

German soccer is limping along. Games yes, but ghost games, meaning no spectators, which results in significantly less money. Even the ratings are falling, and with them the income from TV .

The foundry industry: Under threat of an economic meltdown?

No foundries would bring everything to a stop: no cars on the roads, no spinning wind turbines or airplanes in the sky.

The foundry industry, however, is also suffering significantly from the effects of the global pandemic. What are the biggest hurdles of the present for the industry and how can companies overcome them?
