Such development, to which our people and stakeholders have actively contributed, has been achieved through the efficient use of resources raised in the IPO, the support of the banking system, the generation of cash from the business and the continuing support of our shareholders. We believe that today the conditions are there to start a new phase of growth and development that looks to the next decade, and we have found in Fondo Strategico Italiano the ideal partner to support the Group, with all the other long term shareholders, in this new challenge".
