The shares of Drake & Scull are set to resume trading tomorrow, May 29, 2024.

PARTNERS. “Our team’s dedication and expertise were instrumental in navigating the complexities of the capital increase and ensuring a smooth transition for the company as it resumes trading.”

Drake & Scull’s successful capital increase and return to the DFM signify a new chapter for the company as it continues to rebuild and strengthen its position in the market.
