The anticipated market capitalization of the company is almost RON 21 mn.
‘STK Properties has become the ninth listed company since the beginning of this year, in the same time diversifying the range of shares available to investors. All those who made today's listing possible, the investors, the authorized adviser, the company itself, the BVB team, demonstrate once again our ability to support Romanian companies in their path of growth and development. Today it is about Cluj-Napoca and the real estate field, but since the beginning of the year the stock market investors have supported some of the most diverse companies, from agriculture, technology, agribusiness, IT and constructions’, said Radu Hanga, Bucharest Stock Exchange President.
‘We thank the investors who have given us their confidence and participated with us in this project which is a premiere for the Cluj real estate market, namely the development of a real estate project with the public participation of investors, who thus have the opportunity to have exposure in a field that brought good yields in recent years. STK Properties will be a project company whose main objective is the development of the Green Square real estate project and the return to investors of the realized profit. The procedure for obtaining the Zonal Urban Plan (PUZ) authorization is currently underway, and compared to the time of the private placement, we obtained the traffic permit, one of the essential phases for obtaining the Zonal Urban Plan’, said Nicolae Pascu, President and CEO, STK Financial AFIA SA.
STK Properties carried out a private placement of shares in March 2022, in which 40 investors participated. The company sold 1,552,300 shares, at a price of RON 2,25 per share.

‘The successful completion of the private placement made by STK Properties in March, in a difficult geopolitical climate, is a proof that the capital market is an option for attracting capital at any time. The listing of STK Properties shares expands the number of issuers active in the real estate sector, a sector sought by investors in any economic context’, said Razvan Rat, Deputy CEO of BRK Financial Group.
