A Return to Stability and Growth
Gianluca Scavo

I am pleased to present the Annual Report for 2022, which summarises our Group’s performance over the past year and provides an overview of confirmed future projects.
The strategies we have adopted to ensure continuous and sustainable growth have enabled us to maintain the Group’s stability and financial security, as is evidenced by key data from the Consolidated Balance sheet.

Our 2022 results are hugely significant. The return to historical business volumes marks an important step forward after the sharp disruption to our development plan caused by the pandemic. This return to past turnover and the impressive stability thereby demonstrated are evidenced by a positive turnaround in both our Italian and our international offices.

This solid recovery, in conjunction with confirmed future business, indicates that growth will be ever stronger from 2023 onwards.

I am particularly proud that our Group has successfully overcome the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, demonstrating enormous resilience and adaptability.

We have made significant investments in infrastructure, technology, marketing, and talented people to enhance the products and services we offer, focusing also upon promising new markets, such as Sport Events and Communication, to ensure our future profitability.

In conclusion, I would like to express my gratitude to everyone who contributed to these positive results, and to express my optimism about our prospects for 2023.

The ‘Enzo Buongiorno’ Rehab Centre in Burundi
The most relevant CSR project, and the one we care about the most, is the construction of a Rehabilitation Centre in Burundi, that was named after the Company’s founder, Enzo Buongiorno.

We settimana up in 2015 and are still supporting the orthopaedic rehabilitation centre which has treated hundreds of patients, most of them under 5 years old, giving them the opportunity to walk again.
