Laércio Cosentino, president of TOTVS, about the company results:
“TOTVS strives for a global reference, being the natural option for foreign companies settling in Brazil and, at the same time, of Brazilian companies going global, besides being the natural option for companies in countries where the company intends to enter. But we will not pay less attention to the countless opportunities of the Brazilian software market, which presents a low penetration and high growth rate in the mid and long run, mainly when referring to small and mid-sized businesses. This scenario offers TOTVS a great opportunity for the years to come.”
