With the arrival of the 2017, I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation to each of you for the great work done in delivering a successful year for DGL.
A great variety of challenges, which we all managed successfully, and many wonderful moments of teamwork and “can do” attitude, shaped the year of 2016. What we achieved last year was not only reflected by growth and returns, but also the way our employees go about doing things and the passion we show for our brands and businesses. The remarkable examples achieved, the high motivation, the tireless energy and the great commitment are the essence of which we can all be proud of.
Looking ahead to the new year, I am confident about our growth strategy and our ability to lead our business to anticipate the future needs of our customers and consumers. With our deep experience and a network of long term partners, we are well positioned to drive for further breakthrough. Our performance raises expectations and each year we must challenge ourselves to grow and improve. With a strong base to build upon, we will stay true to our values and create even more innovation and consumer centric experiences to bring another year of success.
I could not be more excited about what is in store for this year, and for the opportunity to work with all of you to make it happen.
I wish you and your families a healthy and prosperous Year of the Rooster.
