Comment of Margus Rink, Chairman of the Management Board of Coop Pank:
"The purpose of the bond program is to finance Coop Pank's future growth strategy. Over the last 4 years, Coop Pank has grown its operating volumes by about 40 percent a year, and our footprint in the Estonian economy is becoming more and more noticeable. We have so far covered the capital needs arising from growth through earned profits, subordinated bonds issued in 2017 and 2019, and an additional share issue and initial public offering (IPO) in 2019. The money raised in this bond issue is also planned to be used to support the growth of Coop Pank.”
