The Board of Directors of EVERGENT Investments, the financial investment company with 30 years of experience in the Romanian capital market, convenes the shareholders on January 20/21, 2022 to attend the Extraordinary General Meeting. The company invites the shareholders to view the documents which refer to: approving a new share buyback program through market operations, reducing the share capital with the shares bought back in the previous program and amending the Memorandum of Association of EVERGENT Investments in accordance with the governance principles contained in the authorization as an alternative investment fund.
“Our main goal is to reduce the discount between the net assets and the EVER trading price. Through the new share buyback program, the sixth, we pursue this goal and continue to offer our shareholders benefits such as increased demand for EVER shares with an effect on liquidity and earnings per share, or increased shareholding in the share capital for those that decide not to sell. Also, the possible increase of the stock market quotation will contribute to the total return rate for the portfolios of our shareholders (capital increase plus dividend).
We are determined to increase the performance of the company as well as the EVER share through responsible and profitable investments, but also according to the principles of our Corporate Governance Code which provides buyback programs followed by a reduction in the share capital, in case of a trading discount of more than 25% for a period longer than one year. The guiding principle is to place the interests of the shareholders at the heart of everything we do through a discipline of the decision-making and a constant focus on long-term performance.” says Claudiu Doros, President and CEO of EVERGENT Investments.
