Benetton shareholders approve financial statementsThursday, 23 April 2009
We are now ever more integrated, innovative, rapid and effective. We can depend on an extensive, flexible distribution model, a network of accredited commercial partners, a quality, affordable product and a solid balance sheet.
We have over 40 years of market knowledge behind us, a wealth of experience and values, and a talented and flexible organization whose ability to seize opportunities means that it is ready to face the severest turmoil. On the other hand, it is at difficult times that we need to invest in our excellences, in the future of our stores, in high product quality and in customer satisfaction in order to continuously progress and be well positioned when the recovery comes.
At the same time, we need to focus on a purposeful and intelligent improvement in efficiency, with courage and a sense of responsibility.
This assumption of responsibility regards everyone - the shareholders and management team above all - because every energy, resource, idea, project and strategy must be consciously focused on the Group's growth and value creation.
Benetton has a tradition and know-how that offer a sense of identity and belonging. We have confidence in our identity, our work and in ourselves. This is because we know that this is the surest path to development and growth. The future, once again, is in our hands.”
