Heureka Group, Europe's largest price comparison website group, is offering investors an attractive option for earning interest on their free cash. Between the end of November and the start of December, it will increase its emission of its 5-year bonds by up to CZK 650 million, to an emission total of CZK 3.2 billion.

The Heureka Group is taking advantage of this trend to boost its
activities. For example, it is working internally to integrate three platforms
into the international #oneplatform or to develop an integrated markeplace that
will allow e-shops to offer their products in all countries covered by the
Heureka Group with one click. Externally, Heureka is expanding the portfolio of
services it offers its partners through acquisitions, the most recent being the
purchase of a share in Testuj.to, a community testing platform for products and
