The General Manager of Olympia Group, Mr. Kostas Karafotakis, stated the following: «Our participation in SoftOne Technologies signals our entrance in the software sector where we develop a partnership based on mutual benefits».
On SoftOne’s behalf, the CEO of the company, Mr. Antonis Kyriazis, commented: «The investment of Olympia Group in our share capital, constitutes a landmark of the company’s successful history and business course until today. Despite the fact that SoftOne has grown by 60% on aggregate basis, during the period of crisis, this investment aims solely to speed up this growth trend both in the domestic and international market. Utilizing the financial strength of one of the largest corporate Groups, SoftOne will be in position to play a dominant role in the changes which are about to occur in the business software industry.
