I would like to thank all of Cresset’s customers and friends for your most valued support during the last 12 months. It has been a year of transition and change for the company, it being my first full calendar year in the role of CEO, as well as seeing us expand the team with the arrival of Martin Slater to head up Consulting Services and Rachel Richardson to head up our Marketing Communications. Although it has been a year of change, we have also continued our commitment to supporting our customers through continuous innovation and development of the Cresset science, technologies and applications.
In our busy year of growth and change, particular highlights have included several partnerships and collaborations including those with Biolauncher, Isogenica and Optibrium and the successful completion of a number of consulting projects, including on-going work with Redx Pharmaceuticals. We were delighted to see many of you at a very well-attended and productive user group meeting in September and hope you will join us again at the next UGM in June 2012. A number of product launches, including new versions of FieldStere and FieldTemplater, have been a part of our continuous development and we look forward to introducing some very exciting new technologies in the beginning of 2012.
We are also celebrating a momentous occasion, with Cresset being 10 years old this year. Three of the original team still provide the heart and soul of the company, and I personally want to thank Andy, Mark and Tim for their hard work in the prior 10 years leading up to this anniversary. Commercially we hope to finish the year strongly, and will have shown growth despite the gloom and doom of the broader economy. As we plan events, launches and improvements for 2012 we certainly hope to continue that progress. We very much appreciate your continued and on-going support, and look forwards to a successful 2012 as we work with you, our valued partners.
Wishing you a happy and healthy holiday season,
