Livia Cevolini, CEO Energica Motor Company says: “EMC is of course a newbie in a very competitive market and is aware that the challenge will be tough, but it is also convinced that customers are now more informed and aware than ever.
In 3 years, we will be market leaders in our niche. Customers are growing a much stronger know-how about technologies, they choose more consciously and not just trusting what big brands tell them. Tesla is a proof that there is room now, more than ever for new brands once the technology is demonstrated and shown to the public.”
She adds: “EMC, thanks to CRP Group has one of the strongest and longest background in hi-tech for motorsport globally for almost 5 decades, and this is a fact”

 With regards to the imminent IPO, UBS and Ambromobiliare will act as lead-advisor and co-advisor respectively. Banca Finnat has been appointed the global coordinator and PWC as auditor. The company has chosen Giancarlo Minardi as an Independent Member of the Board, emphasizing the deep roots Energica and its parent company CRP Group have in the Formula One world. Giancarlo is founder and former Managing Director of the Minardi Formula One team, which is now  owned by Red Bull and named “Scuderia Toro Rosso”.
