During the 2020 financial year, in line with what we did in 2019, we continued our R&D activities for technological innovation. The aim was to significantly improve our production techniques and product range, focusing on technologies increasingly oriented towards energy efficiency, environmental sustainability, integrated production models and IoT technologies that allow us to provide customers with predictive maintenance services.
Maurizio Bertocco, President and CEO of ILPRA, comments: “For the ILPRA Group, 2020 ended with a positive performance in terms of marginality growth. This result is even more significant if we consider the global socio-economic context, confirming the sustainability of our business model, industrial project and the strategies pursued. We closed the year with double-digit growth in terms of EBITDA, EBIT and net profit, more than proportional to revenues. These results also allow us to announce for this year the distribution of a dividend of €0.06 per share with a pay-out ratio of 35%. We face 2021 with confidence and with a constant focus on Research and Development, which has always characterised us”. We proposed a gross ordinary dividend of €0.06 per share (35% pay-out ratio, 2.44% dividend yield), as well as the authorisation of the purchase and disposal of our own shares
