“The Board of Directors and larger investors are clear in their opinion that we want to retain Philippe and see him supported by a stable senior management team in order to continue the Company’s successful journey,” Chair, Stan McLiesh said.

“We believed that successful execution of our strategy should see continued growth in shareholder value. I am grateful to all who have contributed to finalise this positive outcome for the Company today,” Stan added.
