Afya chief executive Virgilio Gibbon said: I am extremely proud to present another year of Afya showing strong results, resilience in our operational and financial metrics and significant evolutions in the ESG agenda. Our performance in 2021 reflects the successful execution of our assertive strategy, the commitment of our team members and the consistency of our business model, particularly during another year of a worldwide pandemic. This scenario was one of the main reasons for the acceleration of our long-term plan as well as the ramp-up of our digital services strategy. This year’s results reinforce that our strategy has been successful since the beginning, marked by the successive growth in net revenue and EBITDA throughout all quarters. As we hope to see, from now on, the pandemic losing its strength, pushing our students, employees, and partners to continue extracting the best from our campuses and digital services.”
