Options to raise funding for Plastchim-T include debt financing and listing on the Bulgarian Stock Exchange (BSE), Assen Hristov, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Eurohold Bulgaria, said.
It will be clear by the middle of 2008 as to whether Plastchim-T will go public. The actual listing of the company on BSE may happen within the next two years.
Plastchim-T is a leading manufacturer of flexible packaging in Bulgaria. The company raked in 52 mln leva sales revenue for 2007, while its net profit for the same year amounted to 2.1 mln leva. Plastchim-T is one of the three production companies within Eurohold Bulgaria's structure.
