"As previously reported, the current financial year will be a transitional one for the Company as we invest in additional resources and significantly increase business capacity.

"A key milestone in this process was reached in December when the Group relocated to larger offices to help facilitate the delivery of its strategic aims over the next 3 to 4 years.

"We plan to recruit up to 20 additional staff over the next 12 months and there will also be investment in new IT systems and business development resources."
