EOS Group opens new company in Ukraine
Expert in debt collecting and consolidation enters Ukrainian MarketIn brief: There is at least 8 billion of uncollected debts in Ukraine. The expert player, EOS Group goes for them.
Hamburg / Kiev, 29 November 2010 – From December 2010 on, the EOS Group (www.eos-solutions.com), an Otto Group company, enters the Ukrainian market. The new local company TOV EOS Ukraine offers debt collection and debt purchase to clients in Ukraine.
Christos Savvides, Member of the Board of Directors of the EOS Group with responsibility for Eastern Europe, explains: “Of all credits in the Ukraine with a total of some 24 billion US Dollar almost 30 percent were rated as defaulting in 2010.” The reason: Individuals who took out loans in foreign currencies, primarily dollars, were hit hard by the devaluation of the Ukrainian Hryvnia. The currency was devalued by over 50 per cent. Therefore, the repayment of foreign currency valued loans became more strenuous – the lower or non-repayment of loans affecting many banks.
