The statement establishes a request to Desarrollo Verde SAS, Chamery SA, Arenas del Cabo SAS and Verde SERVICIO SAS and Juan Martín Balsa Cadenas and has the objective of preserving three real estate projects: “Pilar de los Horneros”, “La Juana” and “Arenas del Cabo”.

“We hereby want to inform you that yesterday and for the purposes of preserving the projects ‘Pilar de los Horneros’ (Desarrollo Verde SAS), ‘La Juana’ (Chamery SA) and ‘Arenas del Cabo’ (Arenas del Cabo SAS) and VerdeCare SAS), the voluntary assistance of the same and Mr. Juan Martín Balsa Cadenas was requested.

The presentation of bankruptcy proceedings decreased by 7.1%

During 2023, there were 91 companies who presented themselves to bankruptcy in Uruguay. Although the figure indicates that there were more than seven companies per month, it represents a decrease of 7.1% in the total, compared to 2022.

The Commercial Defense League (Lideco) carried out its annual survey in which it updates the number of companies that appear before the bankruptcy justice to enter bankruptcy proceedings. In 2023, the total figure decreased compared to the previous year, and there were 91 companies that requested access to this measure.

Of the total, 53 were necessary contests —that is, they were requested by any of the debtor’s creditors—, while the remaining 38 were volunteers —at the request of the debtor. In the year-on-year comparison, the necessary competitions decreased by 18.5%; and volunteers increased by 15.2%.

Although there was a more even distribution between these two options, Lideco still considers that, since 2021, “the number of necessary contests predominates over the number of voluntary contests.” For the institution, it would be necessary to ask “if the difference in favor of the necessary competitions is due to the lack of incentive of debtors to use the legal tool of the bankruptcy proceedings.

Likewise, the companies that entered bankruptcy in 2023 belong to very varied areas; although companies in the sector transport, of the industry construction, extraction minerals, bakeries, medicinal cannabis and holders of estate were the most repeated in the final balance.

Chihuahua Club SAtravel agency Travelgenio, and fintech Wenance They were the companies that entered bankruptcy proceedings for larger amounts.
