« What stands out most clearly from this turbulent year disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic and the accompanying economic crisis,is our company’s excellent resilience,responsiveness and ability to bounce back. These exceptional circumstances were matched by our company’s equally exceptional reaction. This is reflected in the annual financial statements [...] The measures taken at the start of the crisis enabled our Group to overcome the consequences of the crisis and trend positively again in less than nine months. Our performance in the third and fourth quarters of 2020 exceeded our 2019 performance for the same periods. »
