COVID-19 does not significantly affect its financial performance, but several other factors influence it, namely revenue, profitability, and firm size. Several forms of strategies that can be formulated for companies are maintaining cash flow by extending the debt period and shortening accounts receivable to restore the firm's financial health. Then make efficiency in the cost of goods sold and improve operational cooperation to improve the firm's financial performance. Companies can also increase funding by obtaining additional capital from a holding company before financing from outside parties.
