Amsterdam – 5 November 2021 – Euronext today congratulates MotorK Plc (together with its
subsidiaries and affiliates, “MotorK”), a leading software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) provider for the
automotive retail industry in the EMEA region, on its listing on Euronext Amsterdam (ticker code:

(“OEM”) customers and eight offices in seven countries (Italy, Spain, France, Germany, Portugal, the UK, and Israel). MotorK’s main cloud-based SaaS platform, “SparK”, spans a comprehensive
suite of products to support the full vehicle lifecycle and the entire customer journey.

As of today, SparK is used by over 660 dealer groups and 13 OEMs in the EMEA region.
Marco Marlia, CEO and co-founder of MotorK, said: “This historic milestone represents a strong vote of confidence in our technology, solid business model, talented employees, and long-term potential. Over the last 10 years, we have worked tirelessly to build a cutting-edge platform designed to serve automotive dealers and OEMs as they digitalise their operations and develop new online capabilities.
