"The year 2013 - commented Reply Chairman Mario Rizzante, at the end of the Board of Directors meeting - was a very successful year for our Group, whose performance was well above the market average, due to our distinctive and in-depth knowledge of the whole area of digital transformation".
"Nowadays - Mario Rizzante continued - we are at the start of the most powerful cultural, social and business discontinuity since the introduction of the internet: the convergence between the real world and the digital world. This innovation, in which the boundaries between product and service will increasingly been cancelled out and in which technology as well as becoming pervasive, will be the main enabler".
"Reply has the skills, size and strength to be a major player in this new scenario. That is why our investments will aim to further strengthen our position in Big Data, Cloud Computing, Digital Services, Social Media and in the Internet of Things, areas fundamental for the redefinition of business models by companies in every industrial sector", Mr Rizzante concluded.
The manager responsible for drawing up the company’s accounts, Mr Giuseppe Veneziano, declares that, pursuant to Paragraph 2 of Article 154 bis of the Consolidated Finance Law, the accounting information contained in this release matches the information included in the accounting books and records.
