Financial Times ranks Izertis among the 1000 fastest growing companies in Europe
Our company has been included for the first time in the ranking of the 1000 fastest growing companies in the continent, published by the international economic daily Financial Times. In this edition, only 54 Spanish companies have been incorporated.
According to the Financial Times, our company has managed to access the ranking thanks to a compound annual growth rate of 40.6 percent between 2016 and 2019. The FT 1000, as this list is known, which is produced each year by the statistics portal Statista for the British newspaper, it incorporates the European companies that achieved the highest growth rate in revenue in the last four years.
It is not the first time that we have been fortunate to access a ranking of these characteristics. In November 2020 we were awarded by the European Commission as ‘Company of the year’ for our ‘performance and stability’ among the listed companies of the 36 listed markets that compose the European framework.
To be included in FT 1000, several requirements are required, such as having entered, at least, 100,000 euros in 2016 and 1.5 million in 2019; that the company is independent, and not a subsidiary or branch of any kind; and that the growth of the four years valued was mainly organic.
“This news is not only a great recognition of the efforts of our entire team but also an incentive to continue with our projection. For us, being part of this ranking is the confirmation of a job well done which is allowing us to compete in the international framework”, has declared Pablo Martín, president and CEO of Izertis.
Currently, our firm continues with its strategic growth plan with the forecast of reaching 125 million euros in turnover in 2023, and it is at its highest trading price since its entry into BME Growth at the end of 2019. Since then, the value of our shares has multiplied by 5 times, exceeding the 190 million market capitalization.
