History and Today

RMS Mezzanine, a.s. (also known as RM-S Holding, a.s. by 30 June 2010) is a traditional Czech company listed on the Prague Stock Exchange (ISIN CS0008416251, ticker: BAAPVT).

Our company was established based on the deed of incorporation dated 19 October 1990. It was entered in the Commercial Register on 1 January 1991 under the business name “Podnik výpočetní techniky, a.s.” (hereinafter referred to as “PVT”). It is the legal successor of the state enterprise “Podnik výpočetní techniky” which was established as Ústředna mechanizované evidence on 1 January 1954.

In 2003 PVT was owned by the state Czech Consolidation Agency, ČSOB and funds controlled by ČSOB. In a public tender concerning the sale of the system integrator, which was the largest system integrator at that time, 96.52 percent of the shares were sold to the consortium comprising Prokom Software, J&T and Middle Europe Investment. With the offered purchase price of CZK 1.55 billion the consortium won over the consortium of Penta and Unicorn.

Subsequently in 2004 the consortium split the business activities of PVT.  The Core Business Division which performed activities relating to information and communication technologies was taken over by Prokom Software. The Non-Core Business Division which performed activities relating to the commercial use of tangible and intangible assets of the company, mainly real estate and securities, was divided between J&T and Middle Europe Investment. Subsequently it was renamed to RM-S HOLDING, a.s. In 2009 J&T sold its share to private investors.

Subsequently, in the same year Ing. Boris Procik addressed investors with an idea to develop RMS Mezzanine, a.s. into the most successful provider of non-bank funding for small and medium-sized enterprises in Central Europe. After negotiations an agreement was reached with investors and Ing. Boris Procik became the major shareholder who controls RMS Mezzanine, a.s. through a Cyprian company SIMFAX TRADING LIMITED. Ing. Boris Procik also became a member of the company’s Board of Directors on 12 January 2010. On 26 March 2010 he was appointed chairman of the Board of Directors.
