Invalda LT, one of the largest investment companies in Lithuania, earned LTL 99.5 million (EUR 28.8 million) unaudited consolidated net profit attributable to shareholders of the Company during the first nine months of 2013. The result was mostly determined by the accounting profit of LTL 89 million (EUR 25.8 million) which was formed in the process of the reorganisation of the Company.

We consider the company’s results as moderate. Due to the changes in the range of production in 2013, Vilniaus Baldai has been modifying its capacity and production process. It requires a variety of internal changes and investments and should substantially increase the potential scale and competiveness of the company. 2014 should show how Vilniaus Baldai, AB reveals its potential“, – Mr. Sulnis, said.
