Zetes also maintains a permanent programme of research and development, working on solutions for today and tomorrow based on continuous communication with customers and the expertise of its employees. To all of them we express our gratitude for their confidence and enthusiasm.
All this energy and these positive developments have caught the attention of Panasonic, of one of the world's largest technology companies. After 18 months of remote observation, Panasonic invited Zetes to join its group and continue the adventure by offering it a platform to grow faster and more globally.
Zetes could not ignore the irreversible movement of global consolidation in both sectors in which it operates.

Our employees will now start writing a new chapter in our history, with the support of our new shareholder, and in particular in the same spirit of cooperation, trust and loyalty with our many and valued customers.
Zetes will bid farewell to the stock market in 2017, after 11 years of great adventures. We are pleased to have earned the trust of our loyal shareholders during this period.
We express the hope that the company's reduced stock market presence will, as soon as possible, be offset by the increased global presence of our company in its two chosen professions, with more customers and still more innovative ideas inspired by our employees and our new shareholder.
