Electrica remains one of the companies that investors still trust, despite the volatility of the capital market. Even in this difficult period, we have seen the consolidation of the positions of some institutional investors, who traditionally have a medium and long-term investment strategy, in line with the Group’s strategy. We constantly monitor the national and international context, as well as the financial performance and liquidity of the Group companies to limit any potential risks and we are ready to respond, as soon as possible, to situations generated by the evolution of the crisis,” said Corina Popescu, General Manager of Electrica.
