Deividas Varabauskas, chairman of the board of the Sun Investment Group, says that the raised funds will be used to finance the group’s working capital and development costs of solar power projects.
“We are developing more than 2.7 GW of total power projects in Lithuania and several European countries, for which we are looking for various sources of financing.

Karolis Pikūnas, CEO of Orion Securities, sees an increase in the interest of retails investors in bonds.
“This is a trend we have observed in recent years in public bond offerings. We assume that the number of retail investors is due to rising interest rates, high inflation, but at the same time the growing interest of Lithuanians in investing and financial literacy education in the public,” says Karolis Pikūnas, CEO of Orion Securities.
