„One year after the listing, we stay to course and present a stable business, with ambitious plans, correctly calibrated to the current macroeconomic context. We’ve had an accelerated growth over the last three years and maintain our rapid evolution targets through the next five years, with a goal of doubling the 2021 EBITDA through organic growth and acquisitions. We rely on quality in all our points of contact and accelerate our investments in projects that will make us more efficient, strengthen our results and, essentially, reduce our footprint on the environment,” said Jean Dumitrescu, Investor Relations Director, Aquila.
