Completion of the transaction includes strengthening Flexdeal's commitment to achieving the strategic objectives set out in the public takeover offer prospectus (concluded in December 2020), which are:
· Enhance shareholder value creation of Flexdeal and Raize through future partnerships which, without compromising the independence between the two companies, may strengthen the competitive and technological position of both;
· Striving to contribute to the launch of new offers that constitute innovative solutions that are attractive to both investors on the platform and borrowers.
· Seeking to increase Ray’s market share in the credit market, especially among medium-sized companies.

We are on the right track to achieve the strategic objectives that we set when we entered the capital of this company.” In 2020.
