Comments from the CEO

The fourth quarter of 2020 was characterised by a stable performance in Adapteo’s continued business and by a high activity for increasing the Group’s footprint and position in new geographies and market segments. Despite the adverse effects from covid-19, our company has gained in competitiveness and created a solid foundation for future growth. In addition to our circular business model being part of our DNA, we have sharpened our sustainability strategy and made further commitments for progress in the areas of environment, human rights, labour and anti-corruption.

In the fourth quarter, Adapteo's continued business (“Old Adapteo”) posted higher earnings than in the last quarter of 2019. This stable development has been achieved in a quarter when a global pandemic has had a significantly adverse effect on many market segments. In addition, we saw already for November and December a positive contribution from our new colleagues in the Dutch Cabin Group (DCG).
