Cura dimagrante per Helbiz.
Arriva la cura dimagrante dopo i 39 licenziamenti annunciati pochi giorni fa https://andreagiacobino.com/2023/01/05/helbiz-palella-licenzia/
Non c’è pace per Helbiz, la società di monopattini di Salvatore Palella quotata al Nasdaq che l’anno scorso ha perso il 97% del suo valore. Oggi infatti in un file depositato alla Sec, Helbiz ha comunicato che chiuderà entro la prossima primavera le sue attività in tutti i mercati non profittevoli: il comunicato però non specifica i paesi oggetto di chiusura. “Helbiz – dice la nota – announced today that it will be discontinuing operations in non-profitable or cash-positive markets by spring 2023. The decision was reached following a comprehensive review of the company’s operations and a determination that certain markets do not possess the necessary conditions for profitability in the near term. The review revealed that these markets are characterized by a lack of robust regulatory frameworks, high levels of competition, an oversupply of vehicles, and overcrowded streets – all of which impede the Company’s ability to achieve profitable margins”. “We have conducted – ha detto Palella – a thorough review of our operations and have determined that these markets do not have the necessary conditions to achieve profitability in the short term. We will be shifting vehicles from our under-performing markets to those with healthy margins and near-term growth prospects”. Non solo perché in altri mercati sarà Wheels (che recentemente s’è integrata con Helbiz) a farsi carico del servizio. Infatti, “additionally – conclude la nota – in markets where Helbiz or Wheels had a significant user base but were not on a path to achieve profitability, the company will implement Wheels’ long-term rental program as a sustainable solution for our valued customers. This will ensure that no Helbiz user is left without micro-mobility options for their daily intra-urban travels, and that our customers can continue to enjoy the convenience and flexibility of our services”.
