Sometimes bankruptcy is the only way out from a situation. There are the most common reasons that cause such need:

  • The fast increase in the competitive mass that leads to a great quantity of more resourceful opponents.
  • Sharp decrease in demand for the products / services offered by the company, the offered products may become irrelevant, the appearance on the market of more functional analogues.
  • Unforeseen crisis situations (for example, the corona virus pandemic).
