LIMASSOL, Cyprus, Sept. 2, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - MeritKapital (MK) is very pleased to announce its admittance into the Cyprus Stock Exchange as a "Broker and Clearing member firm". MK is excited with this development as it foresees to attract considerable trading interest once the new Bank of Cyprus shares resume trading on the exchange, estimated in the fourth quarter of this year.
MK gained considerable local exposure this past year, as it acted as the first broker of Bank of Cyprus bailed in deposits and shares and has since worked on numerous other such deals of large worth. Since Cyprus's bailout of March 2013, the new Bank of Cyprus shares have been trading on the OTC market. The recently proposed capital infusion of €1bn into the Bank of Cyprus by international venture capitalists, which has been agreed by the Bank's Board of Directors but awaits Shareholders' approval, had priced the shares at 24cents, considerably less than their book value. Following this development, there has been continued interest from international players to continue to trade the stock. As such, upon the stock's listing and based on the continued progression and financial and other restructuring of the Bank, this trading interest should continue.
