The company is a leader in the gifts and gadget market and operates under the Toys4Boys brand a chain of 8 stores located at shopping centres and an Internet store. As an addition, Toys4Boys.pl is engaged in wholesale and B2B sale activities with regard to gifts and gadgets. In 2010, the Company’s revenues exceeded PLN 7m and its operating profit PLN 0.3m.
The issuer assumes that, by using the effects of synergy and many years of experience in operating and developing a store chain, within a year and a half, Toys4Boys will increase its chain to 25 stores, while remaining a leader in Internet sales.
The issuer assumes that, in 2013, Toys4Boys.pl Sp. z o.o. will record a profit equal to 20% of the operating profit of the issuer’s group.

At the same time, the issuer plans to continue to strengthen its position in the area of telecommunication services distribution, including mobile telephony services.
