Company in crisis is the insolvent one or the one imperilled by its insolvency (i.e. the proportion of the authorized share capital and debts is less that 4:100 in 2016, less than 6:100 in 2017 and less than 8:100 in 2018). The Commercial Code amendment introduces many provision for the companies in crisis.
