Paolo Gamberoni, President and CEO, comments: "We are very happy with the achievement of this goal. We listed in 2020 in Vienna at the middle of the pandemic and in the middle of the lockdown, with the purpose of accelerating growth and then doing a new round of raising through an uplisting on what was then still called "AIM Italia". Today we have realized this goal. In the last year, Creactives Group recorded a value of production of more than 6M Euros, a substantial doubling achieved in the last 5 years. Our Artificial Intelligence technology is about 80% sold abroad, used by major customers such as Airbus, Basf, Cemex, Danone, Enel, Siemens. We have started the indirect channel, developing alliances with KPMG, NTT DATA, Minsait - INDRA, LKS Next and set up a business model based on selling subscriptions in "Software as a Service" mode. Recurring revenue has grown significantly in the last two years, doubling turnover and thus establishing a solid foundation for the future. We are now ready to begin a new phase of our entrepreneurial project, and we are happy to do so by entering Euronext Growth Milan – Professional Segment. A heartfelt thank you to the entire team that has worked with us to achieve this goal, starting with our employees, who daily share with us the effort, the beauty, and the sense of our "doing business by innovating"."
In the listing process, Creactives Group was assisted by MiT Sim S.p.A. as Euronext Growth Advisor and Global Coordinator, Fomarte as financial advisor, ADVANT Nctm as legal advisor, BDO as auditing firm, and KT&Partners as Equity Research provider.
