Alejandro Romero, Partner and Global CEO of LLYC, gave an overview of the main objectives of the new Strategic Plan. “We are looking to double our company’s size by the end of 2025, targeting €130 million in operating revenues and €27 million in EBITDA, yet maintaining a healthy margin of 21%. Much of this growth will be driven by innovation and technology. We are aiming for the Deep Digital unit to already account for half of total revenues,” he said. He also pointed out that €40 million will be earmarked for growth in key markets. “We firmly believe that we can achieve these goals. In three years’ time, LLYC will be more international, technological and egalitarian,” he concluded.
