We continue to dedicate ourselves to the growth and development of the company and its asset value; our investment budget of RON 155.8 million allocated in 2024 is a result of this objective.”, stated Claudiu Doroș, President of the Board and CEO of EVERGENT Investments. 


The dividend fund is RON 81,694,796.85 of the net profit of 2023. The registration date will be May 22, 2024 (ex-date May 21, 2024) and June 12, 2024, will be the dividend payment date. 

EVERGENT Investments will carry out three own share buy-back programs, Program 11 with a maximum of 18,200,000 shares to be bought back through a public purchase offer and Program 12 with a maximum of 9,100,000 shares to be bought back through market operations, both with the purpose of reducing the share capital. Program 10, under which a maximum of 12,500,000 shares will be bought back through market operations, aims to reward and retain the company’s employees, directors and executives, within some “stock option plan” programs.

The minimum price of the shares to be bought back will be the marketprice, while the maximum price has been set at 2 RON.
