The entering on the market with the new issue of the PPB line turned out to be a very good decision at the moment and on these terms. The recent commercial successes of the group and suggested conditions by our company interested the individual investors so as the registration has ended earlier and additionally – we will also have its reduction – comments Jarosław Jukiel, Financial Director and Member of the Board in Ghelamco Poland. – At present, it is huge success considering high supply and diversity of offered securities on the bond market. We want to use objective attractiveness of the offer suggested by our company. Moreover, we want to give an opportunity of participation in issue of the PPC line in the amount of not higher than 30 million zlotys to those investors who did not manage to register for the PPB line bonds or their registrations were reduced. The new issue will be conducted on the same conditions as the PPB line, the registration of which was closed before a planned date. All means from the issue will allow us to obtain financing for our new investments – says Jarosław Jukiel.
