Both retail and professional investors will be offered to invest in Group's bonds with a fixed interest rate of 10% and a maturity of three years.

Ģirts Rudzītis, the Chairman of the Management Board and the CEO of the AS Grenardi Group, says: "In nearly 25 years, from a locally owned company and a small family venture, we have grown into the leading jewellery retail network in the Baltics. We plan to strengthen our leadership in the region even further. The Group's robust financial performance in 2023, marked by double-digit growth in turnover and EBITDA, serves as evidence supporting the rapid regional expansion. We are delighted that this bond issue will be available to the wider public, allowing both professional and retail investors, including our clients, to participate in the Group's success story.”
