"We wish to have as many companies as possible to benefit from such programs that the capital market offers. We all want as higher market liquidity as possible, because liquidity and the number of investors are two vital components of any market. We were glad to hear that Romcarbon decided to access the Issuer's Market Maker service, especially since it was one of the first companies listed on BVB, in 1997, and this proves that the management is focused not only on the company's operational activity, but also on investors, because they have a very important role in the life of any listed company", stated Radu Hanga, Chairman of the Board, Bucharest Stock Exchange.

”With over 65 years of experience in plastics processing and almost a decade in the treatment and recycling of plastic waste, Romcarbon S.A. is an important presence in the green industry in Romania, the company constantly investing in technologies that integrate and close the waste recycling circle. The company has been, in the recent years, through the change of the management team and  the new management team, apart from improving company’s business, also set the target to improve the liquidity and reduce the volatility of ROCE share in order to create the value for the shareholders. The cooperation with SSIF BRK Financial Group SA (BRK) for the Market Making program is one of the important measures to reach this goal”, said Huang Liang Neng, Chairman of the Board and CEO, Romcarbon.

The Issuer's Market Maker activity will be provided by BRK Financial Group based on a contract signed with Romcarbon, one of the major plastic packages producers (Polystyrene, Polypropylene, Polyethylene) in Romania and the most important Romanian producer of regenerated polymers and compounds.

"The previous results in the market making operations, materialized in a visible increase in the liquidity of the shares of issuers who used this service, give us hope that in this case we will bring a considerable contribution to improve the liquidity of Romcarbon shares, in line with the objective and our customer's expectations. Starting with September 1st, we will list a volume of minimum 200,000 shares BID - ASK at a spread of maximum 3%", said Monica Ivan, CEO, BRK Financial Group.

“We are happy to see Romcarbon’s interest in ensuring a better liquidity of the company's shares, which is one of the most important factors in evaluating a company in terms of share prices. Romcarbon is one of the companies in the BetPlus index, and an improved liquidity is always a plus and attracts the attention of a larger number of investors. We would like more and more issuers to follow the example of Romcarbon and other companies that benefit from market making services and to use this opportunity offered by the Issuer's Market Maker program, launched by BVB a year ago. BRK Financial Group has been very active in this program since the beginning of this program and will now operate as the Issuer's Market Maker for four companies listed on BVB", said Adrian Tanase, CEO, Bucharest Stock Exchange.
