Performance Still Good
Sugianto stated, Ace Hardware will immediately take a stand after receiving an official notification of the lawsuit.

Previously, Wibowo and Partners’ lawsuit was registered at the Central Jakarta District Commercial Court (PN) on Tuesday, October 6, 2020 with case number 329 / Pdt.Sus-PKPU / 2020 / PN Niaga Jkt.Pst.
In his petitum, the petitioner asked the panel of judges to accept and grant the PKPU application submitted against Ace Hardware. As well as asking to establish a temporary PKPU on Ace Hardware no later than 45 days from the time the a quo decision was pronounced.
Attorney Wibowo and Partners, Fajar Ardianto, said that PKPU’s submission of Ace Hardware was made because it was related to bills that were due and had not been paid.
“The bill is related to the Legal Service Agreement from Wibowo & Partners that is due. For the amount of the bill and other details, maybe you can wait later after the first trial,” Fajar told Kompas.com, Wednesday (7/10/2020).
