"With a robust cash position of in excess of £1.2 million, as at our year end in June 2017, a reinvigorated Board and management team, industry leading products, and a prospective growth outlook, I believe the coming year will be an active one for our Company.  I am pleased to report that my confidence in Aeorema's prospects is shared by my fellow board members and new and existing shareholders, as highlighted by the share purchases.   With all the foundations in place for growth, I look forward to working with our new Joint Managing Directors to expand our industry leading live events operations whilst also identifying prospective value accretive growth opportunities. We look forward to updating shareholders on these exciting developments in due course.

 

"Finally, I would like to take this opportunity to give my great thanks to Peter and Gary for their consistent hard work and commitment.  We wish them well in their future endeavours and look forward to enjoying their continued support going forward as we move into a new phase of growth."
