Giandomenico Sica, Chairman of the Board of Directors of DHH, commented: “In concordance with our fellow shareholders of Connesi, we chose to expedite the conclusion of the earn-out process. The company has demonstrated remarkable performance in this initial year of partnership. In 2022, Connesi posted a turnover of 7M EUR (+27% YoY) and an EBITDA of 1,7M EUR (+57% YoY). Furthermore, in the first half of 2023, it has experienced a 14% increase in turnover and a 24% rise in EBITDA, fostering substantial industrial synergy with Seeweb, our group’s cloud computing provider. Given these developments, we deem our mutual trial period can be concluded early, and we are ready to embark on a new phase of our collaborative endeavor. In this forthcoming phase, our objective is to augment synergies with other companies within the group and to broaden Connesi’s presence across various geographical regions within Central Italy”.
