ACI d.d. has seen continuous growth in all business segments. Given the substantial revenues it has generated and good business results it has achieved, the Company is ready to make considerable investments in the coming period in order to improve the quality of services it provides, establish an adequate structure and enhance the quality of berths and onshore facilities, and to make new acquisitions while implementing international standards of quality, environmental and energy management. In this way, it will maintain its position as the leading nautical company in the Adriatic, and strengthen the brand in Europe and worldwide.
In this context, the diversification of the Company’s business, primarily the orientation of the Company’s financial and human resources towards developing catering and tourism (hotel industry) and commercial activities (retail business) and setting up its own charter fleet, all with the aim of raising revenues and creating new jobs, is one of the key factors of future development. The Company intends to finance a large portion of the planned investments using its own resources, but also plans to draw on the funds of the National Recovery and Resilience Plan as well as the Operational Programmes of the European Union (the 2021–2027 EU Multiannual Financial Framework).
