Ameglia (SP), 21 April 2021 – The Ordinary Shareholders’ Meeting of Sanlorenzo S.p.A. (“Sanlorenzo” or the “Company”) met today in first call, under the chairmanship of Mr. Massimo Perotti. Due to the current COVID-19 health emergency, as provided by the “Cura Italia” Decree, participation in the Shareholders’ Meeting was held exclusively through the designated representative, Spafid S.p.A. Massimo Perotti, the Company’s Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, stated:
«2020 was an unprecedented year for all of us. It was exactly in this extraordinary year that Sanlorenzo has proven – once again – its ability to meet the most difficult challenges: its resilience. We kept our promises, with all the figures growing beyond expectations. This allowed us to distribute a dividend, thus keeping faith to the policy adopted in 2019, in view of the IPO. Among all the positive data, it is worth mentioning the investments made to expand the product ranges, also in new segments, which fostered a very promising start of 2021, with a backlog in progressive and constant growth, whose amount at the end of March was higher compared to the 2020 figure.
My appreciation for the results we achieved goes beyond the numbers. With its first Non-Financial Statement, Sanlorenzo has confirmed its approach to sustainability, which means to us a responsible development, and hence continuously seeking to strike a balance between the need to be cost-effective and to have a sense of social and environmental responsibility when pursuing corporate goals.
I would therefore like to thank all the men and women that work in Sanlorenzo, our Directors, our Shareholders and all our Stakeholders for the support and the trust they keep showing us, trust that we will not betray, by continuing to design and create the gorgeous yachts, the finest expression of our “made by hand, made well”, that got us this far.»
