It is evident that further non-performing loan portfolio sales will conclude over the course of 2020. Further, Cyprus’ government is looking to consolidate the strong recovery in the
economy since the downturn and is looking at initiatives which will ensure the sustainability of the different projects and industries which are currently being developed and supported in the country. Factors such as improved
efficiency, innovation and sustainability are seen as strong factors when attracting investment to the Cypriot economy.

Ranging from the workout or resolution of non-performing facilities to the formal/informal restructuring of a business through an examinership process or otherwise to a restructuring due to succession planning, Baker Tilly are in no doubt that restructuring and insolvency mechanisms will continue to be a presence in Cyprus’ economic landscape for the foreseeable future.

• Debt Restructuring
• Strategic Defaulting
