Comment by Bercman CEO Mart Suurkask:

During the IPO last summer our shares were oversubscribed for 14.5 times. For those investors who didn’t get the desired number of shares at the time, a new opportunity arises. The current share price is not necessarily reflecting on where Bercman and Krakul are moving towards as investing in our company is forward-looking. Over the past year, we have done a lot and we see that all those preparatory activities are going to fuel the growth. Our clear goal is to become the most preferred partner in the Intelligent Transportation Systems and Smart City markets.”
