Genoa, 6 March 2019
EdiliziAcrobatica (EDAC), a company specialized in double safety rope construction works, such as
maintenance and renovation of buildings and other architectural structures, listed on the AIM
Italia/Mercato Alternativo del Capitale segment (EDAC ticker) and Euronext Growth (ALEAC ticker), was
today awarded the assets of ETAIR – Entreprise de Travaux Aériens et d’Interventions Rapides Méditerranée
in judicial liquidation (ETAIR), a leading French company in the double rope construction sector in southwest France. The assets will, however, be transferred to the company EdiliziAcrobatica France, whose share
capital is wholly owned by the Issuer, as the successful bidder identified by EDAC.
The acquisition of ETAIR’s assets is part of EDAC’s internationalization strategy and represents the first
acquisition that will enable it to oversee and develop its first foreign market: the French one.
“Since I created EdiliziAcrobatica I have always had a very clear objective: to revolutionize the way of
building in the world,” said Riccardo Iovino, CEO and founder of EdiliziAcrobatica. “I started in Genoa, 25
years ago, replacing a gutter and receiving a smile and a bottle of wine as payment, but since then I have
strongly believed that this technique that I had experienced myself represented a revolution for the building
world. Since then, I have worked every day with the aim of making EdiliziAcrobatica a reality at the center of
which there were people, employees and collaborators, certain that only this was the possible way to make
my company a company that had the strength to go beyond national borders and export a know-how that is
not only operational, but ethical and human. Today, a week after our listing on Euronext Growth, we are
happy to announce the award of the assets of ETAIR, a company in the sector based in Perpignan: and so
today we can say that the first step towards the world has been taken”.
