Asseco one of the largest Polish private investors abroad
Asseco once again took the third place in the ranking of the "Largest Polish Private Investors Abroad 2021" prepared by the Forbes magazine. The value of Asseco's assets located outside Poland amounted to over PLN 5.4 billion. In 2020, Asseco's foreign markets accounted for nearly 90% of the Group's total revenues.
Since 2004 Asseco has completed over 110 acquisitions. Asseco companies are listed on the Warsaw Stock Exchange (WSE), NASDAQ and the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange.
As a leader I am often driven by faith in the other person. Investors, often even my friends, said that if I pay this former owner a lot of money and he feels materially secure, his motivation will decrease. That was the theory, but it is not confirmed in our actions. It only works if someone wants to sell 100% of the shares, and we never wanted to enter into such a cooperation model. That is why we did not buy powerful organizations where this very intuitiveness would not matter. Software development means total dependence on people. If you took over the majority shares of a 50-person company, you know that if 10 people leave, there won't be much left. To sum up, we take over small and mid-sized companies where there is positive energy and belief that we can do more - said Adam Góral, President of the Management Board of Asseco Poland.
