ALTUM Chairman of the Management Board Reinis Bērziņš:
“With the new bond issue programme, ALTUM convincingly continues to pursue its strategy for raising finance. We are pleased with investors’ great interest in the bond issue, which took place in the Baltic capital markets in a week saturated with security issues. We have been issuing bonds for diversification of ALTUM financing sources since 2017, and our regular activity in the capital markets not only promotes investor confidence, but also enables us to achieve sound financial conditions – the best in our bond issues to date. This is ALTUM’s third issue programme, and we are planning to make the most out of its potential.”
