The collaboration with BRK Financial Group is a new step in line with our goal of creating shareholder value by improving liquidity and minimizing volatility. We want to continue to use all the opportunities that the capital market offers us, and the implementation of the Market Making program is one of them. In addition, Holde Agri Invest is the first company on the AeRO market to start using this tool’, said Adrian Pirciu, Chief Financial Officer, Holde Agri Invest.
