Authorised share capital for a longer period

The Extraordinary General Meeting to be held on 24 August will deal with issues relating to a resolution authorising the management board to increase share capital within the limits of authorised share capital. According to the draft resolution, the management board may be entitled to increase the capital by a maximum of PLN 6.27 million by issuing new shares for a period of two consecutive years from the date on which the amendment to the articles of association regarding authorised share capital is registered by a competent court.

– Authorised share capital is a flexible tool that allows the company to be financed through issuance of shares in an efficient and dynamic manner, where such shares can be targeted at current shareholders or potential financial and industry investors,” said Krzysztof Stupnicki, Vice-President of the Management Board of MCI Capital S.A.

The issue price of the shares issued within the limits of authorised share capital may not be lower than the volume-weighted average share price for the period of thirty days and five days preceding the adoption of the resolution by the management board.

 
Simplifying the Group structure

One of the initiatives aimed at increasing the value of MCI Capital for stock market investors is capital group consolidation.

– Our aim is to ensure that the MCI Group’s operating system and the relevant formal and legal framework are more understandable for those external to the Company, including in particular stock market investors. Therefore, we have taken a number of steps to increase the transparency of our group’s operations and to ensure that the potential of MCI is accurately reflected in the market valuation,” said Ewa Ogryczak, Vice-President of the Management Board of MCI Capital S.A.
