We have a well-defined strategy and we are very determined to execute it. I’m looking forward to taking over the reins from John with whom I have enjoyed working immensely. My confidence in our success is founded on both our new Board, whose ambition and vision will drive the Company forward with real energy, and on our talented team, who have shown enormous resilience during these difficult times. We are ready to take the Company forward as we enter an exciting new chapter.”
