Aton is among the 50 new Italian companies admitted to ELITE, the Italian Stock Exchange international programme born in 2012 in collaboration with Confindustria to support enterprises to realize their growth projects. ELITE grants access to numerous financing opportunities, improves companies’ visibility and attractiveness, gets them in contact with potential investors and supports the management in their itinerary towards a cultural and organizational change.
“Aton’s growth projects move in two different directions:” says Giorgio De Nardi, Aton CEO “on the one hand, investing on research and development to create new products and therefore increase our competitiveness; on the other hand, widening our destination markets, moving from our national economy to an international vision of business. Taking part in the Elite programme – adds De Nardi – gives Aton an opportunity to accelerate organizational and management changing processes and to lay the foundation for a sound growth in the long run.”
The ELITE international community reaches 828 company mark, 520 of which are Italian, amounting to a total of 60 billion euro revenue and emplying over 290,000 people. The Italian enterprises which are beginning their itinerary today come from 13 different regions and operate in various sectors, among which Industry, Services, ICT and Healthcare.
The presentation event of the 50 companies newly admitted to the programme will take place this afternoon.
