Lomsko Pivo is planning to establish a company in Romania at the beginning of 2008 as a result of the growing demand for its products on the local market. The brewery plans to export more than 30% of its production to Romania and EU countries, which means production volume will have to be increased.
The company has also ensured 70% of the barley, necessary for the brewing process in 2008. As a result, the company expects a hike in both revenue and profit next year.
Shares were traded at prices between 3.90 and 4.05 leva today.
