The integration of Evicertia is Namirial's second international operation since Ambienta acquired a majority stake in May 2020. In 2021, Namirial achieved revenues of more than €70 million, recording organic growth of more than 20%, thanks to strong investments in management, organization, products and go-to-market. The strategy of mergers and acquisitions, designed to accelerate growth in international markets, is proving its effectiveness. While Netheos has enabled the entry into the French market and the reinforcement of the digital on-boarding solutions offered by Namirial, Evicertia complements Namirial's capabilities and provides a repositioning of Namirial in Spain and Latin America.
