Since the beginning of this month, shares of the Company have gone up by over 20%, and since the beginning of the year, by more than 130 per cent.

The Board expects to exceed the amount of PLN 3.4b of sales revenue this year. The result is thanks to increasing sales in foreign daughters which are operating on foreign markets of the region.
