On the improving financials, Pasquale Natuzzi, the company's CEO, said: "Despite steady total sales in 2010, we finally reached a positive operating result after three years of negative EBIT. We believe these results are below our growth potential, that we expect to reach in the following years considering the investments made in factories requalification, development and awareness of the brands, as well as in the expansion of foreign commercial branches to improve our market presence."
