We want more and more issuers to follow the example of Purcari Wineries, as well as other issuers included in this program, and to use this opportunity’, says Adrian Tanase, Bucharest Stock Exchange CEO.

‘The collaboration with Raiffeisen Centrobank for market maker services comes with the purpose of further increasing the liquidity of Purcari stock, not only making the Purcari stock more attractive to investors, but also paving the path for the inclusion of Purcari in the FTSE Russell index, where reaching a certain level of stock liquidity is a prerequisite. While we focus on business fundamentals and the growth of the company, we remain investor-oriented and will continue to bring value to our investors through activities such as this collaboration with Raiffeisen Centrobank’, said Eugen Comendant, COO, Purcari Wineries.
