Thanks to our well-balanced customer and product portfolio across different geographical markets, we managed to balance swings in demand, and achieve a solid overall performance during the period. Going forward, with a resilient business model in place, well-invested platform, a promising sales and innovation pipeline in Europe and overseas, we will continue to focus on the execution of our strategy and on capturing new business opportunities”.
