    A complicated situation

    Please, check if the following passage is grammatically correct. Thanks!

    As far as our company is concerned, this is a challenging situation if not complicated and problematic. It seems that some circles in the economic establishment look at the new companies as innovators and dynamic in which young people, or rather –"creative and initiative powers", have taken over the lead and are determined to direct the country towards a future of prosperous and successful economy. As opposed to that, our company is unfortunately perceived as related to the past, our management is viewed as the one which preserves the status quo and refrains from making any change. Mr. Clark's management is held to be part of the outdated economic establishment, not only because it is regarded as reluctant of the current dramatic economic changes, but largely because, unlike the dynamics which characterizes the new companies, it transmits tiredness, skepticism and especially – lack of initiative.

    I am not sure what is meant by the parts I have underlined.
