BEST shareholders agree on share split

On 15 June 2015, the General Meeting of BEST agreed on a 1:4 split of the company shares. This split is just one measure intended to increase the availability of BEST stock for investors.


So far, the share capital of BEST has comprised more than 5.2 million shares with a par value of 4 PLN each. Following the split (which becomes effective once the amendment to the Company Statutes is registered with the National Court Register (KRS)), the total number of BEST shares will increase to almost 21 million. The par value of a single share will be 1 PLN and the number of free-float shares will exceed 500,000.


The share split is just one measure to increase the availability of BEST stock for investors. In May the Company concluded an agreement with the Issuer's Market Maker (BOŚ Brokerage House) and joined the Liquidity Support Programme. As a result, after years of double fixing, on 26 May 2015 BEST shares entered the continuous trading system.


On Monday, the General Meeting of BEST also approved the financial statements for 2014, acknowledged the fulfilment of duties by all members of the Management and Supervisory Boards and decided to allocate last year's net profit to replenish the supplementary capital.
