Collaboration with shareholders remained positive in 2020. Investor Triton has held a majority stake since 2017, while the Van Vliet family, founder of the company, is still closely engaged with Unica as a major shareholder. This combination allows Unica to benefit from its history as a renowned Dutch family business, with all the associated standards and values this brings, as well as the professional support provided in many areas by the Triton team.
The Covid-19 crisis obviously motivated shareholders to focus more on the continuity of business activities and management. Governance was temporarily tightened whereby various financial and operational scenarios were raised and discussed weekly with the Supervisory Board, in which the shareholders are represented. The Covid-19 approach and mitigation measures proved to be effective within a few weeks and management of the organisation continued normally.
