On 7 May 2018, Zhoda Investments (“Zhoda”) announced a rights issue of SEK 21 million and CEO Robert Karlsson will be presenting the issue and the company’s investment program. The issue will raise funds for the development of the organic wine operations in Dalmatia. The company also holds an investment with proven oil reserves in Poltava, currently benefiting from the rising oil price.
“Zhoda Investments focuses on exciting unlisted companies that an individual investor may not be able to find or manage on his own. About a year ago, we acquired an organic 47-hectare vineyard in Dalmatia that produces excellent wines on local grapes. Based on Dalmatia’s proud two thousand year old wine tradition, we are producing premium wines with new technology and the country’s leading wine makers. The company also holds an interest in a producing oil field with proven reserves near Poltava in Ukraine, which posts healthy profits especially in these times with a strong increase in the oil price. Zhoda Investments is now conducting a rights issue of SEK 21 million for new investments in the wine operations. The vision is to become Dalmatia’s leading wine producer with a yearly output of 1 million bottles. The board and management of Zhoda will subscribe for SEK 10 million, almost half of the total issue. I am looking forward to the upcoming investor meetings where I will present why Zhoda Investments may become an investment that stands out not only by creating exceptional value, but also by offering a pleasant and interesting journey”, says Robert Karlsson, CEO of Zhoda Investments.
