The reconditioning market is enjoying a positive dynamic that is supported by structural societal and environmental trends. The funds raised through the IPO will now help us to consolidate our positions with distributors and to deploy growth levers that will enable Largo to become a key French player with telecom operators, to develop our e-commerce sales channel and to distribute a B2B offer to support companies' CSR policies. This is a new page in the history of Largo and we would like to express our sincere thanks to our teams, our partners and our investors, whether they are joining us now or have been with us since the beginning of our adventure.”
