Bulgaria’s Financial Supervision Commission said that it has approved the updated prospectus of local Telelink Business Services Group (TBS Group) for listing on the Bulgaria Stock Exchange.

The regulator did not provide further details in its statement, published on Thursday.

Last month, TBS Group said it will update its prospectus for listing on the Bulgarian Stock Exchange by providing additional information on its preliminary 2019 financial results and planned dividend distribution in 2020. In January, TBS Group said that its consolidated net profit rose by an annual 7% to 8.2 million levs in 2019, according to preliminary data, of which 4 million levs will be distributed as dividend.

“I am hoping that we will quickly fulfil the additional instructions given by the regulator that aim to ensure the highest level of transparency and protection in relation to the high interest declared by both domestic and foreign investors,” Ivan Zhitiyanov, executive director of TBS Group, said at the time.

TBS Group also said in January said its majority owner Lubomir Minchev and the rest of the shareholders with voting rights have decided to offer for sale up to 3.75 million existing shares, equal to 30% interest, at a bottom price of 7.60 levs ($4.32/3.89 euro) apiece.

TBS Group was spun off from local company Telelink Bulgaria in July of last year, becoming the sole owner of IT infrastructure, information security, and digital transformation solutions provider Telelink Business Services and several other units of Telelink, engaged in similar activities.

In 2017, Telelink reorganised its business into four new companies – Telelink Business Services, Telelink Infra Services, Telelink City Services and Telelink Labs. The four companies became part of newly established holding group Telelink Bulgaria.
