Evenimentul and Capital Publishing House demanded to enter insolvency on February 14th.
The information related to company entering insolvency appeared since last year, as Paginademedia.ro previously wrote. In November, company’s accounts were blocked by ANAF as a consequence of publishing house’s debts toward the state.
Contacted by Paginademedia.ro, Virgil Munteanu, executive director Evenimentul and Capital Publishing House, said the situation of the distribution market was one of the causes for entering the insolvency.
Virgil Munteanu, for Paginademedia.ro:
“The main reason has to do with the situation on the Romanian press distribution market. It is our try to protect ourself in such an environment.
At this moment, the company risks to not cash from distribution companies an amount that reaches to around Euro 150,000.
We think that, through a reorganization plan, we will reach to business sustainability, especially as we had, for 3 consecutive semesters, operational profit”.
Munteanu also said the company paid towards the state budget taxes worth RON 2M.
