As a result, the share capital of the Bucharest Stock Exchange will increase accordingly by issuing a maximum of 401,401 new nominative ordinary dematerialized shares with each share having a nominal value of RON 10.

BVB will become the single market and system operator in Romania able to manage a regulated spot market and an alternative trading system. The merger is supposed to contribute to the consolidation of the local capital market.
