We are also considering the possibility of merging with a listed company on a regulated market or an alternative trading system in a European Union member state. Considering the value of the transaction, once it is completed, the initial market valuation of Dendrio Solutions will be 62.5 million lei. We are glad that in this accelerated development process of Dendrio, we will have a partner with a clear vision of the company’s growth potential.
