BUCHAREST, Romania, 1-Nov-2021 — /EPR FINANCIAL NEWS/ — In connection with the investigation triggered by the Romanian National Anti-Corruption Directorate (“DNA”), which we have previously disclosed to the market and to our investors in the initial public offering prospectus dated 26 April 2017, in the supplemental prospectus dated 8 May 2017, as well as in the subsequent public reports, the Company would like to inform its investors and the market that, based on the information published on the official platform of the court on November, 1, 2021, the Bucharest Court of Appeal granted, amongst other appeals, the appeals of RCS&RDS S.A., Integrasoft S.R.L. and of certain directors.
The Court of Appeal quashed the decision of the Bucharest Tribunal from January, 15, 2019 in its entirety. The judgement is final and no remedy against this decision is admissible at this point.
The file will be sent for retrial, to the competent court, which is the Bucharest Court of Appeal, starting with the procedure of the preliminary chamber.
As we stated since the beginning of this investigation, it is our firm belief that RCS&RDS S.A., Integrasoft S.R.L. and their current and former officers have acted appropriately and in compliance with the laws. We have faith in the Romanian legal system and in a correct solution in this case following its retrial by the competent court.
