Mitula success story of a Spanish company
Mitula went public on the Australian stock exchange last year, achieving a valuation in excess of €100M, with the aim of raising capital to continue to grow through further acquisitions of vertical aggregators and to make the company larger, bringing in more shareholders as the founders divest.
