Therefore, we have considered that in the new Board of Directors, we bring people with extensive experience in developing and implementing business growth strategies. Together with Sergiu and Radu, we thank Adrian and Mihai for joining us and the shareholders for the vote of confidence,” stated Iulian Nedea, co-founder and CEO of Simtel Team.

In addition to appointing a Board of Directors, during the GMS, the shareholders approved the granting cash dividends operation, in the total amount of 2,044,023.8 lei, gross dividend.
