AROBS Transilvania Software (BVB: AROBS), the largest technology company listed on the Bucharest Stock Exchange, announces the complete takeover of the entities from the Republic of Moldova, AROBS Software SRL and AROBS TrackGPS SRL (TrackGPS by AROBS Moldova), owned by Voicu Oprean. The company’s shareholders approved the two transactions during the General Shareholders’ Meeting held on December 22, 2022. Voicu Oprean abstained from voting on the two items on the agenda related to the approval of the two transactions.
“The two transactions approved during the GSM fall within the parameters of previous acquisitions made by AROBS, in the M&A strategy of the AROBS group, and were mentioned in the listing memorandum. Therefore, integrating the two companies from the Republic of Moldova into the AROBS group represents a natural step in consolidating and developing its activities. AROBS Software is a company registering stable year-on-year growth. It mainly operates in software engineering for the automotive industry – electric and autonomous cars- and software development for the latest technologies – IoT and life sciences. On the other hand, TrackGPS by AROBS Moldova has a remarkable presence in the fleet management market in the Republic of Moldova, having solid partnerships with governmental clients and reputable companies. The inclusion of the two companies in the group’s structure and, implicitly, in the consolidated financial results will provide AROBS investors and shareholders a clearer perspective on our activity in the Moldovan market,” stated Voicu Oprean, founder and CEO of AROBS.
AROBS Software Moldova is a well-known company in the labor market in the Republic of Moldova due to its partnerships with universities and professional associations, involvement in education projects for students, and building the business ecosystem.

An ANEVAR-accredited evaluator established the two companies’ market values through valuation reports carried out for the first six months of 2022.
