SOFIA (Bulgaria), November 14 (SeeNews) - The Bulgarian Stock Exchange blue-chip SOFIX index registered a third consecutive winning session, following a slim 0.01% gain on Thursday.

Diversified group Doverie United Holding [BUL:5DOV] led gainers among blue-chips with a 2.07% rise to 2.96 levs.

Earlier on Thursday, Doverie United Holding said that it is seeking the approval of its shareholders to sign a 20 million euro seven-year loan deal with the International Investment Bank (IIB). The company intends to use the funds to carry out all types of investments and finance the operations of its subsidiaries, it said.

Other notable gainers among SOFIX members were Elana Agrocredit [BUL:0EA] and First Investment Bank [BUL:5F4], which added 0.89% and 0.67%, respectively.

The wider BGBX40 index, which tracks the 40 most traded shares on the Sofia bourse, decreased 0.44% to 109.66 points, while the BGTR30 index, in which companies with a free float of at least 10% have equal weight, fell 0.59% to 495.76 points.

Both indices were hurt by a 10.81% plunge in the share price of Severcoop Gamza Holding [BUL:6S4].

The BGREIT index, which tracks real estate investment trusts, decreased 0.22% to 129.56 points.
