Marcello Perini, Chief Executive Officer of the Gefran Group, comments: “The results of the 2021 financial statements, which are better than expected, and generation of dividends are truly positive signs. The all-round investment plan implemented in recent years has played a key role in achieving these results and laying solid foundations for future growth. The year 2022 has opened in the same positive way as last year, as demonstrated by the results of the first quarter. We are optimistic about the evolution of our business, despite the current elements of uncertainty: issues in the supply of materials, the effects of the Russia-Ukraine conflict on the global economy, and, most recently, the new lockdowns in China”.
