HPB management retaliated at the hearing with another independent report, issuing a statement of non-cessation of payments and promising a return to positive cash in the very near future.

But this report was made on the basis of incomplete information because it was stopped at the end of November, and the question is: and today?

“, underlined Me Evelyn Bledniak.

If the cessation of payments is characterized, a receivership procedure will be opened.

HPB had, for its part, requested a more confidential conciliation procedure which would have enabled it to choose its own conciliator.

The group also expressed, during the hearing, its desire to sell Go Sport if a conciliation was opened.

Economic alert procedures had been launched in October by the auditors and by the CSEC, worried by the fate of Camaïeu, liquidated last September and which belonged to the same group.

The CSEC elected officials also discovered that money transfers, for an estimated amount of 36.3 million euros, had been made on Go Sport's cash to HPB.

In loss for years, Go Sport, founded in 1978 and based in Sassenage in Isère, had been bought at the end of 2021 for a symbolic euro by HPB from the parent company of the Casino food distribution group, the company Rallye, itself even heavily in debt.
