"Today, Reply combines a solid financial position with a wealth of unique expertise on the market, and top-quality execution and delivery skills," added Mario Rizzante.
"For the moment, the future is still uncertain: while the health emergency currently seems to be under control in the countries where we operate, the recent outbreak of war on Europe's eastern borders has exacerbated signs of stress in all the main markets, with medium and long-term consequences that are difficult to anticipate," concluded Mario Rizzante. "In any case, the process of transformation towards a new digital economy that started in 2020 is now unstoppable and has opened up ample opportunities for growth and development for companies like ours. High-speed communication software infrastructure, e-commerce, new digital experiments and rapid acceleration towards automation and green tech will be the building blocks of the economy over the coming years."
