We are aware of the fact that these objectives take on further value because they have achieved a particularly challenging context for the market. These last 12 months have represented for us an important point in the history of this company: not only have we witnessed the consolidation of Compagnia dei Caribbean as a relevant player in the sector, but we have had the confirmation of how our business model is a solid and winning for the growth of the Group.

The Ebit Margin stood at 9.0%.
