CORPORATE GROUP RECEIVES SEAL OF APPROVAL FOR TOP CREDIT RATING
Experts certify energy park developers "excellent business capability"
The credit agency Creditreform has given G&W, UKA's parent company, an extraordinary credit rating. The entire group was audited, including UKA subsidiaries. Accordingly, the seal, which certifies "excellent business capability" and a "very low risk of default", was also issued to the entire group. According to Creditreform, only two per cent of all companies in Germany may receive the "CrefoZERT" certificate. This credit rating is based on a professional analysis of the annual financial statement conducted by Creditreform Rating AG as well as the credit rating information from Creditreform's business database. Furthermore, the audited company is comprehensively inspected on-site by a Creditreform analyst via a personal interview.
