Dina Ravera, Chairman and CEO of Destination Italia said: We are proud of the listing on Borsa Italiana that will allow us, also through targeted acquisitions, to accelerate our growth to be among the major players of the restart of tourism in Italy. Our goal is to create a national champion of quality experiential tourism and we will begin to do so by riding the wave of the post-pandemic recovery, where digital technology will be one of the main pillars. The Italian national recovery and resilience plan (NRRP) promotes the digital transition and will allocate €2.4 billion specifically for the tourism 4.0 transformation. This is for us a further confirmation of our business model and an incentive to consolidate our leadership in Travel Tech in Italy. To do this we shall exploit the huge tourism potential of our country, particularly in the luxury segment where we are growing, thanks to the SONO Travel Club brand, and on which we focus strongly to satisfy the most demanding customers, who will be the first to return to travel. Besides the historical shareholders Intesa Sanpaolo, at the forefront of enterprise and territory enhancement, and Lastminute.com, leader in digital innovation in the tourism industry, other top partners accompany us in this ambitious project, ranging from Vitaliano Borromeo with the beautiful islands of Lake Maggiore, to Riccardo Illy with Polo del Gusto and Federico Grom and Guido Martinetti with their farm Mura Mura. We would like to thank our team of managers and all the Group's employees, our advisors, who have guided and supported us in this courageous transaction, and the investors who have believed in our business model and who, together with us, are investing in the restart of Italian tourism: we are confident that we will be able to achieve important results in the coming years, in order to create value for all our stakeholders.
