“Retail investors are once again offered an opportunity to subscribe for KRUK bonds. In response to great market interest, we decided to increase the value of the current issue to PLN 90 million. I am glad we are resuming larger-scale offerings on the public market. However, this will not be our largest issue: in 2016 we successfully placed a single issue of PLN 135 million, with the securities then offered already redeemed in 2021. The subscription period for the new bonds starts today, on September 18th, and will continue until October 2nd,” comments Piotr Krupa, KRUK S.A. CEO. “KRUK has been growing for 25 years, and funds raised on the market, in combination with credit facilities, are an important factor fuelling this expansion. Today, we stand as one of the largest debt management companies in Europe and we want to seize the opportunities presented by the current market dynamics and competitive landscape. Following the first half of the year, we boast a solid financial position, and the Group's investments in debt portfolios exceeded PLN 1.1 billion over that period. This year, and those to follow, are likely to be a period of favourable prospects and heightened activity for us.”
