Adam Góral, President of the Board of Asseco Poland: We are pleased with Asseco Group financial results for the first three quarters of 2016. The Group reported, among others, record-high revenues – over PLN 5.6bn. Our international operations are constantly developing, and a highly diversified business sector provides us with great stabilization. First three quarters of 2016 also saw us focus on further reorganization of the Group's structure in Poland and abroad, in order to operate more effeciently and dynamically.
Further reorganization of the Asseco Group’s structure in national and international markets marked the third quarter of 2016. As of 1 July 2016 there are four companies within the Group framework – Asseco Poland, Asseco Business Solutions, Asseco Data Systems and DahliaMatic. Past months have seen intense work on their integration at the operational level, and an even better adaptation to market requirements. Tender offer for the shares of Asseco Central Europe was also an important event. Acquisition of 100 per cent of shares in ACE will enable the plan of delisting the company to go forward. This, in turn, will facilitate decision making regarding further development of ACE, and reduce costs associated with disclosure requirements relating to public companies.
