Investment expenditure planned by the Group for the first half of 2018 assume spending of 14 764 thousand PLN. Basically, it will cover the replacement purchases and modernisation of machine fleet, technical equipment and office and production facilities.
Taking into account the financial standing of the Group it must be underlined that realization of the investment plans is not at risk. As in the previous year, the Group intends to finance the investments from its own funds, which finds confirmation in the gathered resources.
Capital expenditure of the Group for the year 2018 result from the plan for growth and extension of its offer of products and services. The Group is implementing the adopted strategic plans with consideration to changes happening in its environment. The Management of the parent company is of the opinion that further growth of the Group could be accelerated owing to acquisition of entities with experience and references in those market segments where the Group has not offered its products or services yet, or where its share was insignificant. To implement its growth plans the Group will have to gain enough relevant knowledge and experience, what usually takes a long time. This time could be significantly reduced through acquisition of appropriate entities. As such process is complex and timeconsuming and because of difficulties in indicating the value of target companies, the budget for 2018 does not account for the effects of such a transaction.
