Asters' Counsel Dmytro Marichev and Associate Oleksiy Demyanenko participated in the 1st Central and Eastern Europe IPO Summit in Warsaw, Poland on 25-26 May 2011. The event was supported by the Warsaw Stock Exchange, Polish Ministry of Treasury, the National Depository for Securities of Poland, world’s largest investment banks and a number of Polish and international law firms.
The summit became an excellent networking opportunity for potential issuers from the CEE region and Polish and international investors, as well as financial and legal advisors, auditors and other consultants in discussing various aspects of raising equity finance in Warsaw and building promising business relationships.
Dmytro Marichev comments: "Asters was the only Ukrainian law firm participating in the event. We highly value our good working relations with the Warsaw Stock Exchange. The Summit demonstrated vivid interest of Polish institutional investors in Ukrainian potential issuers representing a broad spectrum of industries. We expect significant growth of placements in Warsaw Stock Exchange in near future".
The Warsaw Stock Exchange, the region's most active and developing financial center, attracts a growing number of companies from CEE looking for equity investment. To date Ukrainian companies completed successful IPOs in Warsaw.
