The capital attracted from investors, of RON 45mn, will be used for the accelerated development of the three businesses in the group, respectively for the expansion of the network of TEILOR jewelry stores in Romania and Europe, but also for increasing the number of new agencies operating under the umbrella of Teilor Invest Exchange and Invest Intermed GF IFN.

‘This year, Bucharest Stock Exchange was the financing option for a number of 25 entrepreneurial companies that listed bonds, as well for 23 companies that choose to go public through private placements or IPOs. TEILOR is one of these companies, with a history of 20 years started in Pitesti. Today TEILOR lists corporate bonds of RON 45mn, the largest issues of a company on the Multilateral Trading System. I wish them a warm welcome and good luck’, said Radu Hanga, President of the Bucharest Stock Exchange.
‘Today’s listing marks an important milestone for TEILOR Holding. Today, an entrepreneurial dream that started 20 years ago is embarking on an ambitious international expansion journey. Our goal over the years has remained constant – to always care for our customers, offering a personalised experience and remarking ourselves with a quality product and unparalleled attention to detail. Thanks to the capital offered by the Bucharest Stock Exchange, these TEILOR values will be now offered to clients across Europe. The future of TEILOR is bright, and I would like to use this opportunity to thank, on behalf of the TEILOR Holding management team, our amazing TEILOR team, which consists of over 700 employees who each day deliver to our clients the unique TEILOR experience. I also want recognise our partners for their continued support and partnership in building our business. Finally and most importantly, a brand without customers is nothing but a dream. Therefore, I want to thank all TEILOR customers who have helped us grow organically over the last 20 years, for their loyalty and trust, and I want to assure them that they will always remain at the heart of our business’, said Florin Enache, founder of TEILOR Holding.
‘Our solid track record of growth has made us number one on the Romanian jewellery market. Together with BVB investors, we will continue our client-centric business model, expanding TEILOR Holding businesses abroad and locally through brick-and-mortar stores as well as our online platforms. Our target is to reach 1 billion lei in sales by 2026 when the bonds that we are listing today on BVB will reach maturity. The success of the corporate bonds private placement, the largest in the history of the AeRO market, is a confirmation of the brand notoriety of TEILOR as well as offers us validation of our development plans and we thank all our investors for their trust’, said Mircea Varga, Board Member at TEILOR Holding.
