You can purchase shares in a bank or at a stockbroker that will execute the purchase for you on the Bratislava Stock Exchange (BSSE), the Prague Stock Exchange (PSE), or the Warsaw Stock Exchange (WSE).

You can contact banks and stockbrokers in any way – online, via hotlines, or directly at their branch.
a) With investments on the Bratislava Stock Exchange or Prague Stock Exchange you will need a securities account.
If your securities account is with your bank or stockbroker, you can buy stock directly on this account in your bank or at your stockbroker’s. If your securities account is with the Central Securities Depositary, any exchange member bank or stockbroker can buys shares for you on this account.
You can confirm this by entering your personal identification number on the CSD website.

On the market there is a market maker, i.e. a trader that buys and sells every day, based on an agreement with the exchange, which binds them to execute buy and sell orders of TMR shares via the exchange trading platform – every day you can buy from or sell the shares to the market maker. On the Bratislava and Prague exchanges J&T Banka, a.s. is TMR’s market maker, and on the Warsaw Stock Exchange it is BOŚ DM.
The procedure is similar to purchase. Since the brokerage contract is signed already, you just need to instruct your bank, which keeps your securities account, to sell by specifying the number of shares and the price limit.
The same as any other stock joint company, TMR can pay out dividends. The General Meeting decides on the dividend pay-out based on the proposal by the Board of Directors. Every shareholder can attend the General Meeting.
In addition, there are benefits that TMR offers to members of the Shareholders‘ club: Shareholder club. Any shareholder who owns at least 25 shares of TMR is automatically eligible to become a member of the Shareholders‘ club.

A bank or a stockbroker that is authorized to administer securities accounts.
An account that holds securities of a client. It can be in custody of a local central securities depository (Central Securities Depositary SR, Central Securities Depositary CR, and Krajowy Depozyt Papierów Wartościowych- KDPW) or a depositary participant.
The biggest difference is the fact that the trades based on the commission contract are carried out based on the instruction from the client – this means the client decides alone what kind of securities he/she holds in the portfolio. In a mutual fund a portfolio manager selects the securities, this means the client cannot influence this decision.
