"In total, companies filed 3,907 motions for bankruptcy, which is up 79 percent from 2004," said Peter Meier, the head of Coface Slovakia Credit Management Services, which collects similar data.

The courts rejected 1,035 of the total number of motions due to insufficient assets, a rise of 78 percent from 2004, the SITA news agency wrote.
