  1. TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN

    December, 12th, 2009

    Dear Sir or Madame,

    Three years ago, the company ULIKS from Novi Sad invested in building the green house at the very attractive location situated in the willage called Cortanovci that are 20 kilometers away from Novi Sad and 50 kilometers from Belgrade.

    The lot of land (plot) where the green house is built is 2 ha (hectares) large. All necessary infrastructure is provided there: the road, electricity, water, natural gas… The built green house is 2 500 m2 large possessing the under station for the natural gas heating with 2 Mw power. Beside that, the green house has the thermal curtain, meteorology station and the computer system. The watering system is operating by the system called “drop by drop”.

    The vegetables have been produced there for three years so the full placement of goods on the domestic market has been already provided. We are under the contract with a large Slovenian trading chain market “Merkator” to whom we are supplying 60% of our production and the rest goes to the smaller local markets.

    In the Serbian market there is no developed production of vegetables and flowers in the green houses thus providing a big opportunity to the companies who are involved in this kind of production.

    Our plan is to widen the green house to the 10 000 m2 largeness that would bring the company a higher competition advantage. Beside that, we are considering the change of our production programme to achieve a bigger profit. We think that it might be flowers.

    As the company have decided to enter into the partnership with a company interested in investing and bringing the technology which could provide the bigger profit, we are at your disposal for any further quires or information that you might need.

    Yours Faitfully

    Mr. Drago Pejic
