The EBITDA margin in the fourth quarter reached 12.7%, growing 120 basis points compared to the same period of 2019.

Net Income of 2020 reached $ 460 million (US$ 0.6 million), impacted by a loss in non-operating income due to extraordinary charges registered in the period, among others, restructuring expenses and Goodwill impairment.

In commercial terms, business closures reached US$ 1,025 million. Highlights the trend registered in the fourth quarter, where contract closings totaled US$ 342 million, representing an increase of 21.3% compared to the fourth quarter of 2019.

We implemented as a priority measures to safeguard the health of our employees and customers, ensuring the operational continuity of services at a time when technology played a transcendental role”. He added that “we carried out a plan whose results reflected profitability figures and commercial achievements towards the end of the year, together with a greater dynamism in revenues”. Finally, he mentioned that “at the end of 2020, we managed to emerge stronger, visualizing interesting opportunities for 2021 for the digitization of our customers that we approach with enthusiasm and optimism”.
