Its founders, Victor Căpitanu and Andrei Diaconescu, are leaders with a vision of transformation, growth, and continuous improvement and who know how to surround themselves with an excellent team. One United is made for the capital market, and it is wonderful that our market has reached the moment when such businesses are naturally found on the stock market. The size of the offer and the speed of execution show once again the growth of the market, and the addition of such a sector leader and large entrepreneurial company is good news for investors.
