Latvian lending company DelfinGroup plans to launch its initial public offering (IPO) of shares on the Nasdaq Riga stock exchange in 2021. Details on the amount and price of shares to be issued will be announced before the initial public offering, and a prospectus will be made available after approval by the Latvian regulator FCMC.
DelfinGroup shares that it aims to attract additional financing to strengthen its position as a market leader, develop new and innovative consumer lending products for various social groups, and further build out its consumer lending business.
Didzis Ādmīdiņš, Chairman of the Managing Board, AS DelfinGroup:
“The stable growth of AS DelfinGroup and its successful experience in attracting financing on the Nasdaq Riga stock exchange so far enable us to take the next step and begin to plan the public listing of the company’s shares. Until now, very few companies in Latvia dared to offer their shares on the stock exchange. By doing so, we want to not only open an opportunity for retail and institutional investors to participate in our story of stable growth, but also inspire other companies to make a start on the stock exchange. We anticipate that upside for new shareholders can come not only from an increased share price, but also from dividends paid on a quarterly basis. Over the last three years, the company has paid €6.73 million in dividends.”
Daiga Auziņa-Melalksne, Chairman of the Nasdaq Riga Management Board:
“We are pleased that the experience gained by DelfinGroup as an issuer of public bonds has inspired the company’s shareholders to set new, ambitious growth targets. We wish them success in their planned public issue of shares.”
