The Company ended the previous financial year 2020 with a significantly strengthened balance sheet due to the success of the complete restructuring carried out by the new management compared to 2019.
Restructuring & Financial Control
Regarding the financial statements, the main emphasis of the new management has been on the restructuring of the company, the reduction of liabilities with an excellent result by decreasing $ 563,359 in 2020 representing 44% reduction compared to the 2019 year-end financial statements. A major effort has also been made to reduce costs; as a result, total operating expenses were reduced by $ 371.292 in 2020 representing 20% reduction compared to 2019.
All the efforts devoted to restructuring are the fundamental objectives achieved by the new management in launching Upco’s strategy.
Our ambitious plans are based on our ability to continue to fund our business. In 2020, we took cost-cutting measures. Our disciplined approach to costs will continue until 2021. However, the new situation will not avoid the need for additional financial resources to support growth in the short to medium term in order to target ambitious plans in the next 2 years.
