Over 18% of votes
Industrial Development Agency also informed about taking up 3 589 080 B series bearer shares and 12 528 567 C series registered shares of Trakcja, which constitute in total 18.64% of votes at the general meeting of the company.
As at 30 September this year, Trakcja has an order book worth PLN 2.78bn (€646m). But unprofitable legacy contracts continue to weigh down on its financial results – they plunged the company into huge losses in the first half of 2019. For the first three quarters, Trakcja chalked up consolidated sales revenues of PLN 1,082m (€251m), down 1.4% year-on-year, and made a net loss of PLN 80.9m (€18.8m), compared with a loss of PLN 13.5m (€3.1m) in the same period in 2018.
