“2020 - stated Mario Rizzante, Reply's Chairman of the Board - was a year marked by one of the most complex economic and social crises in contemporary history. Reply was able to react to this unimaginable moment of discontinuity by closing a financial year in growth. In recent months, despite the difficulties experienced in the various lockdowns, we have continued to invest, gaining additional market share in Europe, the UK and in North America, and we have added new expertise to our core offers in cloud, artificial intelligence, 5g, robotics and connected vehicles.”

“We still await an uncertain future - concludes Mario Rizzante - “The emergency is still ongoing, with different trends in the countries where we are present and, much depends on the effectiveness and speed of the vaccination plans. The pandemic is, in any case, handing us back a profoundly changed world compared to the one we were used to just twelve months ago. All sectors, even the more traditional ones, have had to reconfigure themselves, digitalising processes and divisions and, at times, reinventing entire business models. This transformation is irreversible and, albeit dramatic for some, it opens up new opportunities for growth and development for companies like ours. High-speed communication software infrastructure, e-commerce, new digital experiences and a strong boost in automation will be the key elements of the economy over the coming years.”

The manager responsible for preparing the company's financial reports, Dr Giuseppe Veneziano, states in accordance with Paragraph 2 of Article 154-bis of the Consolidated Finance Act, that the accounting information contained in this press release corresponds to the company's records, ledgers and accounting entries.
