Digital Learning Marketplace plc : Refocusing business, cost reduction and director change

Digital Learning Marketplace plc
(DLM or the Company)

Refocusing business, cost reduction and director change

As previously reported Digital Learning Marketplace plc ("the Company") was pursuing a "buy and build" strategy which was predicated upon its ability to raise significant funds for acquisitions.  Given its inability to raise these funds in the current market environment, the Directors decided that the Company strategy will be revised, to consolidate its more traditional revenue streams and to operate at a reduced working capital requirement level. In light of these changes Andy Hasoon has decided to resign his position as CEO and Director of DLM Plc (and associated group entities) to pursue other business interests.  He remains an advisor to the Company in a consulting capacity.

There has been a material reduction in other overheads which are now less than £150,000 per month and based on actual and expected orders the directors believe the Company will be profitable in the current quarter.
