According to the shareholders structure as of October-end, foreign institutional investors held 59.14 percent of the subscribed and paid share capital at the end of October (13.413 billion shares) and individual foreign investors held 5.93 percent, while the Romanian institutional investors appeared with a share of 8.69 percent and local retail investors with 22.03 percent. Also, the shares already repurchased represented 4.19 percent of the subscribed and paid share capital.
