NOTA STAMPA BIO-ON
BOLOGNA, 26 luglio 2019 - Virdhi è una società fondata da Astorri e Cicognani nel 2013 con sede a Honolulu (USA), luogo da cui è nata la tecnologia Bio-On, finalizzata a poter operare alcune aree di ricerca della tecnologia direttamente attraverso una società con sede negli USA, coerentemente con il forte interesse commerciale registrato dall'azienda su quel territorio.
Successivamente la proprietà ha deciso di non proseguire con il progetto, portando il cuore di questo ramo di ricerca in Italia all'interno di Bio-On nella business unit CNS (Cosmetica, Nanomedicina e Smart Materials). Per questo motivo la società Virdhi non ha mai registrato alcuna transazione. Bio-On e Virdhi non hanno mai avuto alcun rapporto di tipo commerciale o finanziario, pertanto non c'è alcun effetto sui bilanci della Società.
Si segnala altresì che la fondazione di Virdhi è antecedente al periodo di quotazione di Bio-On.
