    Pros

    Great business, a dominant company in Portugal, and a lot of innovation that changed Portugal technology landscape

    Future 100% uncertain, due to the shareholder change that is to happen, but never is.

    Advice to Management

    Please regain your power to lead, the downsides are always the place where management should lead. No the other way around.
