On August 26, 2020, SIA DelfinGroup, which operates in Latvia under the brands Banknote, VIZIA and Riga City Pawnshop, had prepared and supplied to the Enterprise Register of the Republic of Latvia a reorganization project to transform the company into a joint stock company. The transformation of the company into a joint stock company will be carried out in the form of reorganization and it is considered that the process will last for about 4 months, in accordance with the legislation, and relevant changes will be registered in the Enterprise Register of the Republic of Latvia.
The reorganization of the company into a joint stock company follows the announcement on the increase of the company’s share capital to € 4 million on 28 July 2020, which was registered in the Enterprise Register of the Republic of Latvia on 4 August 2020. On 31 August 2020, the project was included in the Enterprise Register of the Republic of Latvia which means the lending company has now begun its reorganization process and transformation into a joint stock company.
After the reorganization, it is planned that the share capital of the joint stock company will consist of 40 million shares with a value of € 0.10 per share. As before, the governing bodies of the joint stock company will be the council of the company and the board of the company.
Agris Evertovskis, the Chairman of the Board: “Changing the company’s legal form to a joint stock company is a decision made with a forward-looking view in the future. For example, a joint stock company allows employee stock options that would encourage the involvement of the wider team in achieving the company’s goals and to reap the benefits of achieving those goals. I believe that the decision will also increase the company’s hitherto high rating among existing and potential investors in the company’s bonds and the Mintos marketplace.”
