Speaking before the attending shareholders on the General Shareholders’ Assembly, Zoltán Áldott, President of INA Management Board, together with András Huszár, Executive director for Finance, held a presentation in which they reflected on the most important events and trends in INA’s operations during last year, as well as on the financial indicators regarding each core business activity. In addition, Mr. Áldott emphasized the importance of the major upcoming INA’s investment cycle worth over HRK 2 billion solely in 2012, i.e. larger than the entire net profits generated in 2011. He also welcomed the decision of the major shareholders to retain profits within the Company to set the basis for long-term growth.
“The Company’s management is now facing major challenges; on one hand we are dealing with a changing external environment that significantly affects the financial position of the company, and on the other, with significant investments, which would be particularly intensified in Croatia in the coming period, we strive to ensure the future of the company in the unpredictable years ahead. In this respect, the company’s management remains focused on further improvement of the efficiency and use of their own resources to respond to market opportunities. With a clear vision of what we want to be – an influential regional player – we are aware that we have set an ambitious goal, but with the support of INA’s two largest shareholders, the Croatian Government and MOL, we are confident that we can realize our plans and therefore confirm our status of a leader of Croatian economy,” Mr. Áldott said.
