English term or phrase:to clean up the balance sheets
aus einer Studie über die Entwicklung des frz. Automobilmarkts:
Consumption is likely to grow slowly, against a backdrop of a continuing rise in the unemployment rate, which is likely to be around 9.3% in mid-year. From then on, corporate demand will turn up again, but gradually, with business leaders still preoccupied by the need to ***clean up their balance sheets*** and to face up to the consequences of the appreciation of the euro for external demand.
