Financial sustainability is essential
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we can no longer bear the financial burden we assumed as the medical device sector, which made an extraordinary effort to keep healthcare services up and running. The profitability and financing problem of the sector has turned into a crisis with the downsizing effect of COVID-19. In order not to endanger the public health, companies that take the road to meet the needs of the market under all circumstances, despite their financial losses, will cause irreversible damage in our sector if they cannot collect all their receivables belonging to the previous period. Both this uncertainty in payment and the gradual decrease in access to financial resources put the medical device industry, which currently needs the most support, into an unbearable bottleneck.
