Change the coordinator of the project?

Question details: 
Our company has succesfully passed the 1st stage evaluation of the "H2020-PHC-2015-two-stage" call. Coordinator of the project is a new entity, subsidiary of a big dermatological company, but with no financial data at the moment. We wonder if this financial situation will penalize our stage 2 proposal. Will it be better that the parent company coordinates the project? Explaining that the parent company fully supports the new entity is it enough? Thank you for your help,
Answer: 

Regarding the very limited information given here, we strongly recommend to contact your local National Contact Point for "Legal and Finance" which you can find here: http://ec.europa.eu/research/participants/portal/desktop/en/support/nati... and Financial/1/1/0&+person.last_name/desc

If you are in doubt of the financial situation of your company, you can find information on the financial viability self-check here:

In principle, a change of coordinator is possible, but needs to be very well justified.
