The current wave of corporate debt reduction continues apace as growth forecasts negatively impacted by the financial crisis of 2008/9 are replaced by fresh concerns over the Eurozone and China's slowing economy. This was clearly demonstrated by the announcement late last year by GroCapital, the financing arm of AFGRI - and the recent signing of a binding term sheet - that it will dispose of its corporate debtor's book to the Land Bank.
