CDCP SR achieved all the time highest profit which outgrew results of the previous year by more than 40 percent.

Issuance of bonds is rising
„Recently we recorded growing tendency of issuers to issue the debt securities. We believe that this trend will continue also as adequate option for companies in order to boost their development, respectively restart their business. Another significant factor of the last year was issuance of the covered bonds which replaced the mortgage bonds”, said Martin Wiedermann, the Chairman of the Board of Directors and the Managing Director of CDCP SR. The value of capital expenses of CDCP SR was half a million EUR last year. Investments were directed mainly to modifications of the production software and digitisation project.
„We started the project of digitisation and electronisation from which we expect not only the higher quality and faster provision of services but a higher effectiveness as well. After finalisation of the project and implementation of all modules we will be able to provide our services more flexibly“, cleared Martin Wiedermann.
Slovakia, as well as the global economy, has been impacted by the COVID crisis and makes all efforts to cope with its consequences. „For the last hundred years there was not so exceptional situation as this one. Therefore it will be very important to face new challenges, to maintain previous excellent results and use reserves created in CDCP SR. All these activities shall create basis for us to remain the stabilising element on the capital market“, added Martin Wiedermann.
