The shareholders also approved the club reorganizing itself into a holding company, Arcinfo reports.

HC La Chaux-de-Fonds ends the 2021-22 season with a profit of CHF 86,000. They also generated revenue of CHF 5.2 million, 722,000 of which are from the "à-fonds-perdus" subsidies. The team will, however, still have to pay back CHF 1.1 million from the credit they received from the Federation.

As for the holding company, it will consist of four limited companies: HCC Sports, HCC Marketing, HCC Catering, and HCC Academy. The aim of their reorganization is to "rationalize revenues through a better distribution of the clubs' activities." The holding company will be owned by the shareholders.
