"MAMBricolaj coming to the Bucharest Stock Exchange makes us happy, primarily because it is a premiere, being the first company in this economic segment to enter the Bucharest Stock Exchange, but also because it is a new proof that the capital market supports the development of Romanian entrepreneurial companies. One of the main lessons that the health crisis has shown us is that we need to rely more on Romanian business and, at the same time, to support them, which, by the way, is the main objective of the Bucharest Stock Exchange. We are convinced that we are fulfilling this role, and the funding rounds of more than 2.1 billion euros carried out in the previous two years alone prove it fully", said Radu Hanga, Bucharest Stock Exchange Chairman of the Board.

"The listing on the stock exchange is a strategic direction for the company, part of the plan for the accelerated expansion of MAMBricolaj store network in the main urban centers in Romania. We aim to use all the mechanisms offered by the capital market to support accelerated growth and to develop a successful partnership with stock market investors. By expanding the store network, we want to be closer to customers and offer them a more efficient alternative to purchase furniture or furniture accessories and as well to benefit from the ease of receiving a professional consultation with the furniture design service", said Cristian Gavan, MAMBricolaj founder and CEO.

MAMBricolaj was founded in 2011 by Cristian Gavan, having as main business directions the sale of materials and accessories for furniture and related products, DIY in furniture and offering design services in furniture.

“We start the year with several events of market interest: on one side, the capital increase carried out by Bittnet Systems, for which the first phase will end this week, on the other side, the listing of two new issuers on our capital market. The success of the placement and the listing of MAMBricolaj show that the Stock Exchange is an option for large and small companies in all fields of economy and have a serious business and offer investors an honest working model, based on mutual respect. We wish them much success in this new stage of their development!”, stated Ovidiu Dumitrescu, TradeVille Deputy CEO.
